Born as the headquarters of the Capitano del Popolo, a very important public title during the Middle Ages, Palazzo del Bargello was the first public building in Florence and later residence of the Chief of Police that became the city prison. Today, the Palazzo of Bargello is a museum in Florence with one of the most important collections of Renaissance sculptures hosting masterpieces as Donatello's David and Michelangelo's Bacchus.
During our Bargello Museum tour, we wander around in the rooms of the old prison in Florence and explore the ancient seat of the Captain of the People. Crossing the medieval courtyard, a place of pre-existing gallows, we reach the main rooms, which now house the undisputed masterpieces of Donatello and Michelangelo!
We are talking about the Donatello's David and Michelangelo's Bacchus!
Besides all this, we will visit the room with the David of Verrocchio and the Lady of the Bouquet, collections of Della Robbia ceramics, ivories, applied art, and medals.
