How to visit the National Museum of Bargello in Florence
Inside the severe building, more like a castle than a museum, you can find the originals of works of art of old ages, including four sculptures by Michelangelo, David by Donatello, works by Giambologna.

After passing through the lobby, you will find a small courtyard, reminiscent of a theatrical scene. On the walls - the coats of arms of noble families and emblems of districts of the city. In the Capella del Podesta, which previously served as a place of last stay of prisoners, now you can see the murals, on the same floor there are halls of jewelry, articles made of ivory, Hall of majolica.

You can spend in the Museum of Bargello a few hours, here you will have much to see and take pictures.
