Following a longish walk around Florence exploring, we came across the Piazza della Santissima Annunziata. At the time, it was filled with a lovely French Market but the Piazza itself is beautiful. Having read in the guide books about the museum, we just had to...More

We visited last week on a whim after seeing too many churches and were so glad we did. The lower level is dedicated to the founders, work and inmates of the hospital and includes the history of the institution. It is a very modern museum...More

I wandered into this lovely museum by accident and found it a lovely change to the rest of the attractions in Florence. As more of a history junkie than an art junkie. It was so nice to learn some social history of Florence, rather than...More

Last month was my fourth trip to Florence, so I had already been to all the big tourist sights (Uffizzi, Duomo, Accademia, etc.). While family members went to the biggies, I headed off to see some of the less well known places. The Museo degli...More

Parts were full of information and interactive displays, parts felt more bare. Lovely building and certainly learnt a lot about orphans and abandoned children, social welfare system. Roof top views good.

I just spent 2 days in Florence (not enough to even scratch the surface). We did not pre-book the Uffizi or the Academia in Florence, so, unfortunately, we did not get to see David. Nonetheless, Florence is charming, laid back, and enchanting. Today, we visited...More

Only viewed from the outside as I didn’t realise it is possible to go in but my imagination was caught by the guide book’s description of how children could be left at the orphanage anonymously. Stand with your back to the square then look to...More

Historic building designed by Brunelleschi and decorated by Della Robbia (and others) this recent renovation shines much needed light on social history of Florence (Innocenti was the hospital where people abandoned their children for many reasons).

San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a
stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence,
surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking
students provides the tranquil surroundings for the
elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read
the daily newspaper. Home to several universities,
including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one
of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A
