My artist-art-teacher husband loved this smallish house museum. It's an out-of-the-way place belonging, at one time, to THE Michelangelo’s great nephew. It's filled with Michelangelo's studies and works that had moldered in a closet for over a hundred years, which his nephew collected and lovingly...More

If you are a Michelangelo fan then this is a must to visit. It is a small museum but they are a number of interesting pieces on display. The bronze model of the Pieta Bandini is definitely worth seeing. There are 2 sculptures of Michelangelo...More

I really enjoyed my visit to this place! A humble house with much history. Very well designed with many interesting items on display: some Michelangelo works, but mostly art collected by the Michelangelo family over the years, and also many interesting displays and memorabilia telling...More

Casa Buonarroti is not the most important museum to visit in Florence but it's a must for Michelangelo enthusiasts. You will see his first two sculptures; "The Virgin of the Stairs," and "The Battle of the Centaurs." Look closely at them as you can if...More

The actual home that Michelangelo lived in in Florence. Only a block from Santa Croce and an easy and rewarding several minute side trip.

We were not sure what to expect but loved the works and the stories. Absolutely worth a visit for anyone interested in Michelangelo.

A museum on land downtown that was owned by Michelangelo in a house built by his grand nephew. Contains his first sculptures. The art is beautiful. Very interesting place with none of the crowds of tourists seen elsewhere.

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
