Find your way to the Bargello Museum and exchange your voucher for an entrance ticket that includes skip-the-line access. Breeze past the often-long entry lines and enter the courtyard, where you can begin your self-guided exploration of the museum. The Bargello Palace was originally built in 1255 as a symbol of the people's victory over the Florentine nobility.
The ground floor features masterpieces sculpted by Michelangelo, Giambologna and Cellini. Continue to the first floor to see the Council Hall, or Salone del Consiglio, which is constructed with high ceilings and once served as a tribunal hall when the palace was used for procedures in the people's government. The room now holds some of Donatello's finest works; continue to the Ivory Room to admire the 265 pieces of the Carrand collection, including reliquaries, ceramics and diptychs dated from the 400s to the 1600s.
Proceed to the second floor to peruse a collection of terracotta objects, including the impressive Busto di fanciullo (Baby's bust) by Andrea della Robbia. Admire the collection of medieval weapons and ivories in the Sala delle Armi and an exhibition of Italian Renaissance bronzes and medals.
You are free to explore the museum at your own pace; your entry ticket is good anytime during the museum's opening hours.
