What people are saying about National Museum of Bargello

A must for Art lovers

Our guide Elena was very professional. We left with a lot of new things learnt. We had enough time to contemplate the highlights of this gem-like museum. Exquisite exhibits, interesting stories behind. It would have been a loss not to book this activity.

Essential visit

The museum is spectacular and not yet overcrowded, perhaps it is less known, and it is appreciated. The guide we hired for the guided tour, very good and very friendly, made the visit enjoyable and we learned a lot with her. Essential visit

We carried out this visit accompanied by Riccardo who illustrated all the most important works contained in the museum very well. A visit that I highly recommend given the beautiful collection that contains

We had a guided tour by Lucy Lopardo. She tells you everything about the Duomo: all details, myths and stories. Always open to answer your questions. Glad we had you as our guide, thank you Lucy!

We didn't make it to Florence

Although we didn't use this in the end, we love self guided audio tours so I'm sure this would have been good.
