Best of the Bargello Experience – Florence Private Tour

Explore Florence’s most ancient public building now the Bargello National Museum and admire beautiful works by some of the most famous Renaissance sculptors of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.

Masters

Including Donatello, Verrocchio, and Michelangelo, the Bargello museum is an often overlooked but must see museum experience in Florence.

Fascinating history

This tour will give you a better understanding of this city’s fascinating history and how its artists revolutionized art in the Renaissance.

Once a jail

The museum itself also has a mesmerising history, since it served as the home of a high ranking official in the Florentine government and doubled as a jail before being transformed to the museum it is today in the late 19th century.

Incredible Collection

The museum also houses an incredible collection of weapons, coinage, tapestries and other arts.

Artworks

You will also see fabulous artworks by Brunelleschi and Ghiberti showcasing the competition for the commission of the baptistery doors in Florence duomo (cathedral) in 1401.

Masterpieces

Alongside sculptures from Cellini, Andrea della Robbia and Pisano, there are entire rooms dedicated to Michelangelo’s astounding and often unseen sculptures – including the exquisite ‘Pitti Tondi’ – and the renaissance artist Donatello, whose works includes the fabulously effeminate sculpture of David wearing a whimsical floral hat.

    Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and fun. This was our first private tour and I loved being able to ask follow-on questions and have the intimate experience of learning one-on-one. I’d recommend it. ArtViva is a top notch organization with a lot of professionalism and the staff to have excellent follow-through.
