- Gallery of the Academy of Florence
The Gallery of the Academy of Florence was inaugurated in 1784 with the aim of offering study material to students of fine arts in Florence. However, nowadays, the gallery is the second most visited museum in Florence, so not only students enjoy it.

- Palazzo Vecchio
It is a palace but it has the shape of a castle and is one of the most representative images of Florence. The entrance to the Old Palace is flanked by a copy of the statue of David by Michelangelo and Hécues and Caco by Baccio Bandinelli. Both are always surrounded by visitors who enjoy the beautiful Piazza Della Signoria.
The palace is impressive, especially the so-called Sala del Cinquecento.

In addition to invaluable sculptures, Palazzo Bargello has an enormous collection of Roman, Byzantine and Medieval pieces, with jewels, enamels, ceramics, weapons and instruments.
Another attraction of this museum is the building itself, a fortress built in 1255, which was first the house of the mayor and later a prison (in the sixteenth century). Just to admire the interior of the palace, it is worth the visit.

- Leonardo Da Vinci Museum
It is not one of the best museums in Florence, but it is one of the most recommended for children since its objective is to show the public the life and work of the genius Da Vinci, among other things, through tactile experiences and tests with Leonardo's inventions.
The big wooden models of the Da Vinci machines will leave the little ones speechless.

It opens every day from 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
