The San Marco museum was good to see but not spectacular. It was interesting to see the cells of the previous occupants and the individual frescos are fascinating, unfortunately the Library we werelooking forward to seeing was under repair so we didn't see it. Next...More

My favorite annunciation, which is by Fra Angelico is housed here, and the collection is incredible. It's an amazing treasure.

The museo is extremely well planned and informative and is a very interesting visit while in Florence. If you know nothing about the history of the building, do not worry, by the time you leave you will be an expert! Wonderful experience

The Annunciation on the 1st floor is worth the trip. It's amazing to think there are so many Fra Angelico frescoes in the one place.

Fra Angelico's Annuziation spectacular and it is quiet and not so many tourists. Lovely to walk around and see the paintings in the monk's cells. One can imagine Cosimo meditating in one of two cells set aside for him. The museum also worth seeing.

San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a
stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence,
surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking
students provides the tranquil surroundings for the
elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read
the daily newspaper. Home to several universities,
including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one
of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A
