Enjoy one of Italy's best museums in the heart of Florence.  This In Situ segment describes the history of the building and the the works you'll enjoy.

You'll enjoy a Drunk Bacchus by Michelangelo, the mad turkey of Giambologna, a couple of Davids by Donetello and Verrochio, and the competitive panels for the competition to win the commission for the doors of the Baptistery.

This accessible, and rarely busy museum is a perfect stop even if you're not a museum lover.  It's well organized and important works of art will bring a smile to your face and put to use that art history class from college in a fun and enlightening way.
