Refreshing look at the lovely del Sarto Cenacola
Mar 2019 • Couples
Tucked away in the San Salvi chapel in a quiet area of Florence and well worth the trip to find it. Also in the same chapel are many other fine paintings including a few by a nun. The visit was delightfully quiet.

Neglected Masterpiece
Jan 2019 • Solo
Andrea del Sarto's Last Supper is one of the neglected masterpieces of Renaissance art. Grand and spacious, the apostles depicted with great variety, each one strongly characterized. It is well worth the hike to this slightly nondescript area to encounter this great work in its original location, a former monastery, which can be enjoyed in peace (unlike most art masterpieces in Florence), and for free! The museum also has an interesting collection of lesser works well displayed and explained. This was my second visit to the San Salvi museum, and the only disappointment was that the other treasure of the museum, the group portrait of the Medici family as the Holy Family by Giovanni Maria Butteri, was for some reason not on display.

A Masterpiece
Sep 2017
It is well worth the time to seek out this small museum on the outskirts of Florence to view the wonderful cenacola of Andrea del Sarto. Other works are on display, but we came for the cenacola and it did not disappoint. The piece is vibrant in color, spectacularly rendered by the artist, and moving in its depiction of the event. Plus it is uncrowded and free to view! As of 9/2017' the number 6B bus will get you there from the SMN train station or piazza San Marco. The museum is about a 2-3 minute walk from the Sant 'Afric (spelling?) stop, right after the bus goes over the bridge spanning the railway tracks.

Wonderful art on the edge of town
Jun 2017
A bit of a trek from the center. We walked but would be a short taxi. Small museum of paintings but the real star is the beautifully conserved Cenacolo by del Sarto. Well worth the trip. And we were all alone.

Spectacular
Jul 2016 • Solo
This is a true hidden treasure in a city that is brimming with fantastic historic and cultural gems. I was fortunate to be taken there by a friend in a car, as it is off the beaten tourist and unfortunately also public transportation path. Needless to say that I was all by myself in this lovely place, no entrance fees were charged. There are about 25 or so paintings by contemporary artists of Andrea del Sarto in this former refectory, but in the big eating hall you will stand in amazement to see the Last Supper by Andrea del Sarto, which is as spectacular if not more as the painting with the same title by Leonardo, especially when you stand right in front of it. Awesome, to say the least. Some of the other works are a little dark, some others are very beautiful, like two by Suor Plautilla Nelli, one of the first women painters of the Renaissance, an Annunciation by Sogliani and a painting by Franciabigio, "Noli me tangere" which is very moving. Very worthwhile your visit, even when you have not seen all the famous places yet!

Nice!

The Museum of the Cenacolo of Andrea del Sarto is on Via di San Salvi. A bit removed from the city, getting there is a bit of a trip. Nonetheless a visit is recommendd as this museum is less touristy and houses some lovely relics and art work.

Last Supper, in Solitude....
Jun 2015 • Couples
You'll need to take bus and still walk some to get to this "...way out there..." special Cenacola / Museum, but all of the efforts are worth it. The Cenacola is very infrequently visited by tourists even at the height of the season, so there is peaceful solitude as you gaze upon the great art and religious treasures. The best, IMO, is the Last Supper, a very special piece. Enjoy. ...

Free Museum in Florence
Jun 2015
We were glad to visit this simple yet a hidden treasure of Florence. Far from the city proper, and not easily to access by public transport. But very rich in collections and It's FREE.

Watch out for the real life harpy
Apr 2015 • Couples
A bit of a nightmare to get to, involving local buses and a long walk, but in our experience you may well have the museum to yourself and can experience its exhibits well away from the overcrowded attractions of the rest of Florence. Most people will want to visit to experience the astonishingly well preserved fresco of Andrea del Sarto's Last Supper, but we had a particular reason to be looking at some of the few remaining sculpures by Benedetto da Rovezzano. One of these is a huge lavabo with antique classical decoration including two extraordinary harpies supporting its base, but the other is the far more important set of remains of Rovezzano's tomb of St John Gualberto, damaged in 1530. On the day we visited this end of the gallery was closed off with a small rope barrier. I foolishly moved this and stepped inside to take photographs, whereupon a real life harpy appeared from nowhere and screeched at me to remove myself - which I did, rapidly, reflecting that as in much of Florence visitors are tolerated, not really welcomed! Watch out for the opening hours here, 8.30 until 1.50; if you need lunch after the travails of getting here we can certainly recommend the restaurant La Taverna dei Matti in the square outside; good value and a friendly welcome.

San Salvi is worth visiting for del Sarto´s "Last supper" alone.
Oct 2014 • Solo
In Florence you´ll find some excellent examples of tuscan "Last Supper"´s, Gaddi in S Spirito, Andrea del Castagno in Sant´Apollonia, Ghirlandaio in San Marco and Ognissanti, but in my opinion Andrea del Sarto´s fresco in the refectory of San Salvi is the most important and most wonderful of the kind. The convent is peaceful and wonderful. If you come for del Sarto: You´ll get to see a lot of other beautiful artworks!

San Salvi is a bit out of the way, but if you are in Florence to experience art: It´s definitly worth the effort!
