“Amazing fresco work by Giotto”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This is a beautiful chapel built to save the soul of a money lender. The frescos by Giotto are outstanding and show biblical scenes.

“Suggestions”
Reviewed September 21, 2012

Be sure to visit the museum and see the video and other displays before your time to enter the chapel. We did a lot of study with a video art course including Giotto before our trip and it was a good idea. Some of the frescos in the upper registers are hard to see clearly from the floor level

“A pilgrimage”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Of course you should visit!!! My wife was an art history major and we had tears in our eyes the whole time we were in the chapel. Not to be missed.

Absolutely amazing, worth the money. Remember to order tickets online before hand. On Monday the museum is closed and the admission is cheaper
