If you want to see some of the most beautiful and impressive paintings and frescoes by Fra Angelico, this is where you have to go. His Annonciation is one of the most sublime work of art of the 15th century.

A bit reminiscent of boarding school although the monks had larger cubicles and better pictures! We loved the sense of peace about the monastery, the relative simplicity and the wonderful colours in all the Fra Angelico frescoes.

We stumbled upon this gem and were very pleased. Got a sense of history while touring the monastery with the cells for monks and nuns with fragments of frescoes on each wall.

The museum is not as busy as others, and has some beautiful treasures, apart from the Doors of Paradise, e.g. Maria Maddalena by Donatello and a stunning silver altar piece recently renovated

This museum is just a few metres from the "home of David " in the Academy. It is a wonderful building with cloisters and cells of the former convent. The construction of the building is fascinating in itself but the artwork in the individual cells is amazing. The quality of preservation is fabulous with vivid colours. This must be one of the best value visits in Florence and well worth an hour or two of anyone's time
