Don’t miss the frescoes of Museo di San Marco, noted for housing the largest collection of sacred art in the city. The museum is located in a former convent, which was home to two famous Dominicans during the 15th century, the painter Fra Angelico and the preacher Girolamo Savonarola. The museum now contains a major collection of works by Angelico, including some of his best-known panel paintings, commissioned by the Medici family. There are a number of smaller frescoes painted by Angelico and his assistants inside the monastic cells. The museum also exhibits works by several other artists, including Domenico Ghirlandaio, Alesso Baldovinetti, and Fra Bartolomeo.  Plan to see Museo di San Marco and other attractions that appeal to you using our Florence trip maker site .

  • I really loved this old monastery, that is still living and active today. The admission is inexpensive and the crowds are smaller but the experience and the art is very interesting. It is a good rest place away from the hustle and bustle of Florence. Definitely enjoy the monk cells on the second floor.
