Description

Dive into the marvelous world of the Renaissance! Discover the extraordinary collection of the Bargello Museum, Italy’s first national museum established by royal decree on June 22, 1865. Meet your private English-speaking guide, a charismatic and knowledgeable expert, and set off on a lovely guided walk through Florence’s fascinating city center. Romantic, surprising, enchanting and irresistible, Florence is where a countless number of geniuses such as Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Brunelleschi and Donatello lived, thrived and created some of the world’s most important works of art. After your guided stroll enter the Bargello Museum located in Florence’s historic Palazzo del Podestà. Get ready to marvel at this treasure chest of world-acclaimed artwork! From the moment of its foundation the Bargello’s collection brought together some of the most important works of Renaissance sculpture: masterpieces by Donatello, Luca della Robbia, Michelangelo Buonarroti, and Benvenuto Cellini, drawn largely from the Medici-Granducal collection. Subsequently, the museum’s holdings were enriched with superb examples of bronzes, ceramics, waxes, enamels, medals, ivories, tapestries, seals, and textiles. Follow your guide through the museum’s three floors, starting with the enchanting panorama of the palazzo’s courtyard and the Sala di Michelangelo, filled with sculptures by Michelangelo, Cellini, Giambologna, and Bartolomeo Ammannati, on the ground floor. Marvel at the impressive Sala di Donatello (Donatello Room), home to the Florentine artist’s most famous works and see creations by the della Robbias, Ghiberti and Brunelleschi creations.
