Its one thing to see great artwork on display in a museum. But to see painting by a great master... in my view as powerful as Michaelangelo... in an active setting such as this monastery where they were part of the daily life of the monks, well that was amazing.
The artwork in the cells on the upper floor was beyond description, and for such a small admission price, you really see a beautiful exhibit. We got there at the 815 opening and had the place to ourselves... a refreshing break from the push and shove of the Uffizi.
In my view this was my most enjoyable art stop in Florence. Do not miss!!
