  • Not as big as I thought it would be, but the displays are beautiful. It’s a beautiful museum with a reverent atmosphere. The most famous statue you’ll see here is the David by Donatello. It’s a quick trip, and definitely worth your time.
  • Nice museum in the heart of the town. Not as overwhelming as the Ufizzi, but some great stuff all the same. Like a lot of Florence, you need to like your religious art....
