Awe-inspiring artwork, and off the beaten path. Not to be missed. Only 5 people were inside when we went at 1pm on a Wednesday, with no reservations. Definitely stop to see the Last Supper before you leave, it's huge but easy to miss since it's...More

The artworks here show part of the stylistic progression from Masolino to Masaccio to Filippino Lippi. They are in very great condition and well described in any good guidebook. It is worth a walk to this quieter section of Oltrarno, and the piazza out front...More

This is a less visited church in Florence. But the art works are excellent. Early renaissance frescoes and paintings by great masters.

If you are on foot, you'll have to walk a little way through the Oltrarno to get here -- on the other hand, that in and of itself is a good excuse to cross the Ponte Vecchio and experience this side of the river. This...More

The frescoes are of course "must" ones. However, if there is any queue, you must take first a coupon which allows you to buy a ticket when you come again in your time slot. Why you can't buy the ticket in one time...

We paid 6 euro per person to enter the Santa Maria del Carmine thinking we would have access to the entire complex. All we were allowed into was the Cappella Brancacci, plus another small room (Cenacolo) with a short video.... that’s it! Granted, the frescoes...More

This is Masaccio's masterpiece, who worked with Masolino; unfinished parts being completed by Fillippino Lippi. You have to book in advance, and you will be shown a video beforehand. This key work requires study beforehand; otherwise its importance will pass you by.

There is limited entry by time slots - good idea - but when we were there it was not crowded and this process was not necessary, just held people up. Since we had the Firenze card we took the walk over to take a look....More

Of the many places we visited on our trip to Florence, this was our favourite. These frescoes are just stunning. Painted over a number of decades in the 15th century by three different artists they were last renovated in the 1980s. The colours are fresh...More

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria
