Information and ticket booking for the Bargello National Museum, Florence, Italy
The Uffizi has the paintings, the Bargello has the sculpture. There you are - no need to buy a guidebook now, is there? Invariably less crowded than the big-draw venues of this impossibly artistically-rich city, the Bargello, one of the oldest buildings in Florence, is home to works by Michelangelo, the della Robbias, and Donatello.
Once prison, police headquarters and the site of public executions, this Gothic palace first opened as the national museum (Museo Nazionale del Bargello) in 1865, displaying a large collection of Gothic and Renaissance sculptures of the 14th to 17th centuries.
The Bargello is open all year round from 08.15AM until 02.00PM (closed in the afternoon, in other words). You'll need to check your calendar for closing days as the Bargello is closed on the second and fourth Monday of every month, as well as the first, third and fifth Sunday of each month (we've made things easier by blocking these days on the booking calendar).
As with many venues in Italy, there are often special exhibitions running, and the ticket price will reflect this. From the 23rd of March until the 18th of August 2013 the Bargello has a special exhibition entitled 'Percorsi di meraviglia. Opere del Bargello restaurate' (see blog post)'. In common with other museums, the ticket price will be slightly increased during the run of the show. There are reduced price tickets available for EU citizens under the age of 18 or over the age of 65, as well as for EU citizens between the ages of 18 and 25.
