Lonely Planet review

Anglo-Italian, Florence-born Frederick Stibbert (1838-1906) was one of the grand 19th-century wheeler-dealers on the European antiquities market and amassed an intriguing personal collection, showcased in Villa di Montughi, aka the Stibbert Museum. Take bus 4 from Stazione di Santa Maria Novella to the 'Gioia' stop on Via Fabroni, from where it is a short walk.

Particularly great for kids is the Sala della Cavalcata (Parade Room) where life-sized figures of horses and their riders in all manner of suits of armour from Europe and the Middle East rub shoulders. Other varied exhibits include clothes, furnishings, tapestries and 16th- to 19th-century paintings.
