Musée d'art
“The Academy was built in the 1784 when the Grand Duke of Tuscany Pietro Leopoldo reorganized the Academy of the Arts of Design, founded in 1563 by Cosimo I de'Medici, in the modern Academy of Fine Arts. The new institution occupied the rooms of the fourteenth century of San Matteo Hospital and those of the convent of San Niccolò di Cafaggio. The museum was enriched with the suppression of churches and convents ordered by Pietro Leopoldo in 1786 and by Napoleone Bonaparte in 1810. The decisive event in the history of the museum was the transfer of Michelangelo's David from Piazza della Signoria in August 1873. The most famous sculpture in the world waited nine years, kept in a wooden case, the conclusion of the construction of the Tribune designed by the architect Emilio De Fabris to welcome it. Today's Academy Gallery was established in 1882.”

“Purchased in 1550 by Cosimo I de Medici and by his wife Eleonora of Toledo to transform it into the new grand-ducal residence, Palazzo Pitti soon became the symbol of the consolidated power of the Medici over Tuscany. Palace of two other dynasties, the Habsburg-Lorraine (successors of the Medici from 1737) and of the Savoys, who inhabited it as royal of Italy since 1865, Palazzo Pitti still bears the name of its first owner, the Florentine banker Luca Pitti, who in the mid-fifteenth century wanted to build it - perhaps designed by Brunelleschi - beyond the Arno, at the foot of the Boboli hill.”

Museum
“It is the mausuleo of the Medici dynasty. The dark crypt precedes the imposing, sumptuous Cappela dei Principi: a vast seventeenth-eighteenth-century setting covered with hard stone inlays made by the famous Opificio, where the sarcophagi of the Medici Grand Dukes dominate. Adjacent is the famous New Sagrestia by Michelangelo - an extraordinary synthesis of sculpture and architecture - in which we can admire the Tombs of Giuliano Duca di Nemours and Lorenzo Duca di Urbino, in addition to the sublime Madonna with Child.”

“ Sepolcreto of the Medici family. It hosts the graves of 50 members of the noble Florentine family. The Chapels are located in the Basilica of San Lorenzo but have an independent entrance behind the Basilica. In addition to the Crypt where the Medici are buried, the new Sagrestia, which Michelangelo built for the tombs of Lorenzo and Giuliano dei Medici, and the Cappella dei Principi, built starting from the seventeenth century as a mausoleum of the Medici, are part of the complex. A particular fact regards the imprisonment of Michelangelo who was detained there for some time”

“La cupola è un'opera di ingegneria strabiliante. Si tratta della più grande cupola in muratura al mondo. Costruita in muratura autoportante è costituita di due calotte una interna e l'altra esterna. Per raggiungere la lanterna sommitale si cammina proprio in mezzo all'intercapedine delle due calotte. Splendida la vista all'altezza del tamburo che permette al visitatore di ammirare la maestosità degli afferschi della cupola a distanza ravvicinata. Favoloso il panorama dalla lanterna, che abbraccia l'intera città di Firenze.”

“The National Archaeological Museum of Florence (Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Firenze) is one of the oldest museums of its kind in Italy. It holds Etruscan, Greek and Roman collections, and houses the Egyptian Museum, the second largest collection of Egyptian artefacts in Italy, after that in Turin. The museum was inaugurated in 1870 by King Victor Emmanuel II, soon after which it needed to be relocated due to lack of space to its current location Palazzo della Crocetta, a palace built in 1620 for princess Maria Maddalena de’ Medici, sister of Cosimo II de’ Medici. Large parts of the Etruscan, Greek and Roman collections were collected the Medici and Lorraine families. Also the Egyptian ”

“If you're a fan of Leonardo da Vinci, you'll probably want to stop in Vinci, his birthplace and spend an hour or two in this museum dedicated to Leonardo, the Inventor. It features full-scale models of his machines and inventions, and set within an historical context. The museum store is also fun, full of Leonardiano, from silk scarves to shopping bags and build it yourself kits.”

“See the sunset from Piazzale Michelangelo Okay, so Piazzale Michelangelo is one of my very favourite and best free places to visit in Florence around sunset. It’s the kinda spot that sometimes gets overlooked (if you want to stay completely near Duomo itself). That being said, you should take the 30-minute walk to this incredible viewpoint, which offers views all across the city. Honestly, this is the place to come if you want to take in some of the best panoramic views of Florence. If you’re planning to visit around sunset, arrive a little earlier and enjoy the best viewpoint. It’s a gorgeous way to finish of a day exploring. ”
