We visited here in early October 2013. This chapel is famous for its frescoes on the Life of St Peter commissioned around 1424. Begun by Masolino, many frescoes were done by his pupil Masaccio and by Filippino Lippi. These frescoes used the revolutionary technique of perspective and placed Masaccio in the vaguard of Renaissance painting. Michelangelo himself visited this chapel to study the pioneering work of Masaccio. This is not overcrowded with tourists and is a pleasant walk over the Ponte Vecchio and along Borgo San Iacopo - about 15 mins.
