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.

  • Another amazing place to visit when in Florence. So worth it. Bought the tickets online on their website. Such a gorgeous galleria and atrio with tons of history withheld in it, from portraits to ancient journals, to sculputers and Christian arts made with gold. Well maintained. The staff was very helpful in answering any questions or curiosities we had.
  • An extensive art museum. There are a number of monk rooms in which each room contains a frescoes. There are a number of rooms and floors to visit. Allow approximately 2 hours to visit. The ticket costs €8. You can buy the tickets online or when you visit. We purchased the tickets at the venue. When we visited it was not too busy. It was opened Monday to Saturday 8:15 to 13:50 pm.
