In the main nave of the church that was S. Paolo all'Orto are plaster casts of some well-known Greek and Roman ancient statues and bas reliefs that you can see up close and in the round, unlike the way they are usually presented in their respective Museums (e.g., the Vatican Apollo Belvedere and the Lacoön). They are rather crowded however. Upstairs are some original (not copies) from a collection of pottery, with a number of good Etruscan pieces. The church itself goes back to at least the eleventh century, and like many underwent numerous alterations and changes. It seems to have belonged to Dominican nuns from the 15th to the 18th centuries. You can suss out the medieval and the Medici-sponsored 18th century bits. But as a whole, the changes and shortening of the nave, etc. have left it a bit incoherent to the eye. Almost all of the informative commentary is in Italian only. Entrance is free.
