This convent is located near the Piazza of San Marco, a couple of blocks away. It is located just outside of the touristic zone and at time of our visit, we were the only people inside. Here is a large hall on which at one...More

It's not a place for the casual tourist, just for real art lovers. It has lesser known masterpieces of Florentine Renaissance, made by Andrea del Castagno. It is quiet, calm, not crowded, it's free to visit. Of course, the range of the exhibition is small,...More

There are many beautiful last suppers in Florence--2 Ghirlandaios, Perugino's, Andrea del Sarto's, but this one is beautifully restored and those psychedelic tiles! Don't miss it!
