Because of Stefano Bardini's foresight and love of architecture, we still have many elements of buildings that were torn down in the 1860s. The museum is quite attractive and easy to navigate. The staff are eager to see more visitors and they will answer your...More

I enjoyed this off-the-beaten-path (no lines! no crowds!) museum that holds one man's collection and ponders ethical questions about collecting. Do you restore them or leave them as is? Is it right to take them out of their original context? Like the Isabella Stewart Gardiner...More

In amongst the madness that has become life in Florence, lies an oasis of tranquil beauty with the treasures collected by this clever man. It is a stand out for our week in Florence and would encourage everyone to use their Firenze card here first!

Great to see some collections of antiques. We spent an hour here and enjoyed the statues, wooden carvings, carpets, furniture, frames, bronze, urns, weapons, early photos and more. John Currin paintings were on display throughout the museum as well at the time.

wonderful poplars and holm oaks. The long ascent opens
up to the most beautiful and famous panoramic
viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an
elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and
breathtaking view of the entire city from above.

Hello Linda F, Museo Bardini is a museum in Florence. I doubt they have have airport transportation, this is not a common service provided by museums.
