According to my guide book, the artists involved (Masolino, Masaccio, and later Fippi) strongly influenced the Renaissance artists. This may well be true. It is beyond my art knowledge which is, admittedly, quite limited. The chapel is just a small part of the church which...More

Have seen the Academia, Uffizi Duomo complex, San Marco, and Hospital of the Innocents and this is my favorite. The frescoes are vibrant and interesting. Admission was 7 euros and I also got the audio guide with a screen. First time I did that and...More

As a group we were five minutes arriving at the time slot. There was no one ahead of us yet we had to wait 30 minutes to go in. Ridiculous beaurocracy that we have seen too much of in Florence.

Breathtaking! Tip: an audio guide was excellent - definitely a must. I learned so much from it. Reservation is a required but it was not crowded anyway. I made the reservation in advance by calling a number.

Awe-inspiring artwork, and off the beaten path. Not to be missed. Only 5 people were inside when we went at 1pm on a Wednesday, with no reservations. Definitely stop to see the Last Supper before you leave, it's huge but easy to miss since it's...More

The artworks here show part of the stylistic progression from Masolino to Masaccio to Filippino Lippi. They are in very great condition and well described in any good guidebook. It is worth a walk to this quieter section of Oltrarno, and the piazza out front...More

This is a less visited church in Florence. But the art works are excellent. Early renaissance frescoes and paintings by great masters.

If you are on foot, you'll have to walk a little way through the Oltrarno to get here -- on the other hand, that in and of itself is a good excuse to cross the Ponte Vecchio and experience this side of the river. This...More

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria
