Five Museums Not to Miss in Florence

There's more to Florence museums than just the Uffizi and the Accademia! While these two art galleries are certainly a must for anyone visiting Florence for the first time, don't underestimate some lesser-known museums or itineraries inside famous landmarks.

Take the Bargello Museum: this former barracks and prison houses a collection featuring masterpieces by Michelangelo, Donatello, Benvenuto Cellini, Giambologna, Della Robbia, Gianlorenzo Bernini, Jacopo Sansovino and others. And how many take the time to actually peek inside the beautiful Palazzo Vecchio, where you can take a fun tour of secret passages and staircases and hidden rooms.  

Explore below some of your options to delve into Florence's rich artistic and historic heritage beyond the classic museum spots.
