great museum, bang in the middle of town but apparently invisible to the crowds visiting uffizi etc. Yes go see David, but don't miss this lovely museum

Wondering through this building I could just see the Florentines wander from room to room. It was hard to imaging the place as a prison though, The art work makes it a definite sight to see while in Florence.

A short visit as we arrived an hour before closing, but worth it to see a fascinating collection of sculpture including Donatello's David and several pieces by Michaelangelo. We went late afternoon, no queuing and relatively quiet.

The Bargello is packed with treasures - and not to be missed. The ancient stones of this former prison building could tell more than a few grim stories from the past. It was outside its walls the young Leonard sketched a hanging man, thrown from...More

Got to door just at opening at 8:15. We were the second couple to get in ( unlike M. Academia where we paid twice entrance fee to skip the line)! There is just as much art here as at Academia although you don't get to...More

Saw some great sculpture but had no audio guide and the written stuff was sketchy. Easy to find and on a main route from the Duomo to Ponte Vecchio.

A less crowded easier to access dive into history in Florence. We were not rushed by crowds of folks taking photos, had some rooms almost to ourselves. Nice couple of hours.

This museum was an unexpected gem. It was not crowded like the Uffizi and Accademia so we could take our time exploring and soaking in the beauty. Some important works housed here included Donatello's David and a few lesser known Michaelangelo sculptures.Brunelleschi's and Ghiberti's panels...More

The architecture of the Bargello is as important a character in this museum experience as the works of art it is exhibiting...and what amazing works they are. Donatello's most iconic sculpture of David is here. Two of the competition panels for the Baptistry doors by...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

Hi In all honesty I didn't find them particularly engaging but definitely not rude. I would really recommend visiting the museum
