Which museums do you recommend for sculpture?

Jump to last reply

Per Rick Steves the National Museum of Rome has the best Roman sculptures.

However, the Borgello in Florence has a wonderful collection of sculptures too. I know the David is at the Academia in Florence but the Borgello is supposed to have a wider sculpture collection.

Which of these two museums Borgello in Florence or National Museum of Rome do you recommend for sculpture?

What about the Capitoline Museum in Rome? Do you recommend a visit there? That museum has sculptures and mosaics.

Let's not forget about the Borghese which I believe is high on everyone's lists with Bernini sculptures and paintings by the masters--Caravaggio, Raphael, and Titan to name a few.

So many choices and such little time. Which of any of these museums did you enjoy most? I know art is very subjective but I want to hear people's opinions on what they liked.
