A trip to Florence would not be complete without visiting the Uffizi Gallery. It is one of the most famous museums in the world due to its outstanding and breath-taking artworks and masterpieces, which are all conserved within its walls. Botticelli, Giotto, Cimabue, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci and Raffaello are among the most famous great Italian artists whose work the gallery hosts. Most of the collections date back to periods between the 12th and 17th century but you will find pieces that date back even further
The Bargello National Museum, located in the Palazzo del Bargello, hosts a significant collection of Renaissance sculpture and works of art. The building, in 1255, was the headquarters of the Capitano del Popolo and later of the Pedesta and Council of Justice. By 1574 it was the home of the Captain of Justice and was being used as a prison.
