The Uffizi Gallery is a beautiful place, full of art, in a city that is a museum in itself. I loved the part of the Uffizi Gallery where you can see the Arno river and the Ponte Vecchio from the window. The bust, despite all the art is in the museum, seems most reminiscent of life outside the walls of the museum.
To see Michelangelo's David is priceless, especially on Thursdays from 19 to 22h when the entry is free. That is, if you can get there early enough because there is always a line. You must stop here if you visit the city. I leave you with a picture of David from behind. You can discover the front when you come in person to see it.
Guido di Pietro (known as Fra Angelico) was a Dominican friar, born near Florence ve devoted himself to painting religious frescoes. Following in the footsteps of Alberti Renaissance painting has a natural touch that reflects movement and drama. Special care was taken in the treatment of light, which greatly influenced his followers, such as Ghirlandaio. He was born in 1390, died in 1465 and he developed to perfection the art of frescoes/murals. One of the many examples of his art is in the Convent of San Marcos, in all the cells the monks leave their mark, it's just a few steps from the Academy where you'll surely see David. Don't miss the work of this great Italian Renaissance painter.
The archeological Museum (Florence) has one of the most important collections of Etruscan art in the world. See the Crocetta Palace, built under the Grand Duchess Marie Louise of Austria in the year 1620. Its Egyptian art collection, is the most important in Italy after that of Turín. Increased by numerous acquisitions and donations, in addition to the remains found in the archaeological campaigns in Egypt in 1885 and from 1891 to 1892 led by Schiaparelli.
The Museo dell'Opera del Duomo is another must-see place in Pisa's Piazza dei Miracoli while you wait to climb the tower. I bought the joint entrance ticket to all the local attractions, so I don't know how much individual entry costs. The museum contains sculptures and frescoes which were formerly located in the Cathedral, the Baptistery and the other buildings in the square. From the yard, you can enjoy beautiful views of the Tower of Pisa.
This museum is located on the banks of the Arno River, before arriving at the church of Santa Maria della Spina. It is a new museum, and I haven't been able to find much information about it online. It has a permanent collection of furniture and decorative objects, as well as temporary exhibitions.
The national gallery is one of Siena's leading museums, inaugurated in 1932, with the first catalogue published by Cesare Brandi a year later. The collections cover 26 rooms on the ground and first floors, with works from the thirteenth to sixteenth centuries by Duccio, Simone Martini, Pietro and Ambrogio Lorenzetti, as well as other painters of the Sienese school - Stefano di Giovanni, Sano di Pietro, Lorenzo di Pietro, Domenico di Bartolo, Matteo di Giovanni and Francesco di Giorgio Martini, Domenico Beccafumi, Giovanni Antonio Bazzi, Girolamo Genga ...
The Museo Delle Sinopie is located in the Piazza del Duomo across from the Tower of Pisa. I bought the special ticket that gives access to all the square's museums and monuments, except the tower, so I don't know how much the individual entry costs. At the museum, you can see original sketches of the works that adorn the Cathedral, the Baptistery, and others. There's also an exhibition of old costumes. Not a must-see, but worth a visit and small enough to see quickly.
A cute gallery in an amazingly gorgeous town; varied and beautiful works of sculpture are shown in a friendly and fun atmosphere. Isculpture displays a selection of works by very talented Italian artists, young sculptors who are both skilful craftsmen and sublime artists. Ceramic, bronze, alabaster, marble and iron are some of the media used by them to explore their possibilities of expression and the challenges of the materials.
The house was designed by Vasari, an architect-sculptor-painter, who was born in Arezzo in 1511. You must take note of the artistic side of Vasari to take the opportunity beautify the home in which he used fresh with portraits and figures from mythology. Today it has become one of the most unusual houses in Tuscany.
It is shocking to see these torture machines, designed for no reason other than to inflict pain on your fellow human beings. Realising that some countries still use torture today is a harrowing thought. I recommend a visit, though, to see the worst excesses of mankind. San Gimignano also has another museum about torture and the death penalty that we have not seen, but which is probably interesting.
The Diocesan Museum, is situated in the old convent building of the Dominican Friars in Tuscany, which was founded in the year 1592. It has more than 8OO works of art originating from many of the parishes in the region. What characterizes this museum most is the popular feeling of its works, which show a great predominance of sculptures, which, along with quarrying, has long been the traditional occupation of this region.
Housed in a wing of the old monastery of San Romano, in the small square of the same name, the Comic Museum is a very beautiful place that can be visited for €3. A family visit from the first comic book to the recent comics to unite all generations. You're welcomed by Spiderman, and then other heroes are also inside.
The Diocesan Museum di Arte Sacra (Pisa) has works from the cathedral and diocesan churches with paintings, sculptures, jewelry, ornaments, priestly vestments and the only surviving marble monuments of the fourteenth century Catedral.
