Mythology at the Bargello (Florence) for Kids

A visit to the Bargello with its extraordinary artistic heritage is a suggestive way for children to come in contact with some of the most interesting ancient myths: those of Juno, Bacchus, Mercury, Narcissus, Perseus, Jason, Cupid and Psyche, Apollo and Marsyas, the fatigues of Hercules, and the tragic death of Laocoon. Our local specialized guide will introduce Renaissance masterpieces by famous artists such as Donatello, Verrocchio, Michelangelo, and others.

The museum also houses prestigious collections of bronzes, majolica, waxes, enamels, medals, seals, ivories, amber, tapestries, furniture, and textiles that belonged to the Medici family or were privately donated.

At the end of the tour, we will stop for a much-deserved gelato!
