Drawn to the Della Robbia rondels on the building's facade, we had been unaware of the museum that had reopened in 2016. The rich history of this orphanage that took its first orphan in, in 1455 is beautifully told in an excellent, highly visual, informative...More

I enjoyed very much the visit and the interpretation. Of course, the presentation only scratches the surface of what this place meant for the city and for the girls and boys who lived here. In any case, the architecture, the art collection and the cafe'...More

I've wanted to go into the Ospedale for years, and now it has been restored and reopened. The building is important and worth seeing, but the displays within seem to have been designed for children essentially (nothing wrong with that, but do be aware). The...More

While there are no blockbuster pieces here, the art collection is terrific. Much more moving is the presentation of the history of the institution and its work. The display of objects and histories of children is deeply affecting

We stumbled on this new museum and it was a big happy surprise. The Ospedale degli Innocenti is located in the magnificent Piazza Annunziata, the last intact Renaissance square in Florence. There are Della Robbia plaques of swaddled babies (repros, but a couple of the...More

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
