ABOUT THIS TRAIL

There are many famous works of art and museums in Florence, Italy, but this city has so much more history than what is in the top-ten lists of things to do. The Stibbert Museum holds an enormous collection of weapons, armor, art, and furniture that once belonged to one man - Federick Stibbert. He was a collector and roamed the world looking for pieces to add to his collections knowing that he wanted to one day turn his Villa into a museum. From Egyptian tombs to Arabic armor, Samurai swords to Napolean's clothing he wore when coronated to become the King of Italy, this fascinating museum will leave you enthralled. Because it isn't in the historic center, many miss this incredible place and the gardens that surround it. It's absolutely worth it to visit this corner of Florence, get away from the crowds, and see this beautiful city from a different vantage point.
