The Bargello Museum in Florence is such an underrated museum. There are some really important works of art in there and everything else is extremely beautiful. This museum doesn’t take long at all to go through and is definitely worth seeing if you’re ever in this city.
Vivoli is said to be some of the best gelato in Florence. I’ve learned that the less attractive and decorated the gelato looks, the better it tastes. That is so so true; so if you’re ever in Florence, or anywhere in Italy, stick to the less touristy, less pretty gelato places for a more authentic taste.
Hello and cheers to the weekend! I wanted to share a little fun fact about the city of Florence, Italy today that I didn’t know until I came here. If you are ever in Firenze on the first Sunday of the month, a ton of the museums are free! It’s definitely worth hitting a couple if you can because overall, you do save a bit of cash!
It is impossible to do every single free museum in a day so do your research and pick out your favorites. On my free museum Sunday, we went to Accademia, Palazzo Pitti, and the Boboli Gardens. This total took about 5 hours to conquer.
I didn’t rush through only because I knew I will have another first Sunday in Florence again before I have to return to the states. My next visit I think will cover the Uffizi, Bargello, and the Medici Chapel.
Below are my photos of my outfit I wore along with some photos I took throughout the day at the museums I stopped off at.
Galleria dell’Accademia : this is the museum where Michelangelo’s famous Statue of David lives. It is definitely a must see while you are in Florence.
Palazzo Pitti : this is where the ruling families of Florence lived, post- Medici, and was basically used for many different things afterwards. This museum is absolutely stunning, there isn’t a dull part.
Bobble Gardens : the Boboli Garden is a huge, beautiful outdoor park connected to the Pitti Palace. There are many sculptures and fountains and the views are stunning.
