Every time I come to Firenze, I climb the stairs to see Fra Angelico’s Annunciation. It is spellbinding. His hand had to be touched by God to create such beauty. The fresco will take your breath away!

If you have an interest in Renaissance monastery life, in Savonarola, in frescoes, in other fine art or just in beautiful buildings, this is a fantastic stop on the Florence history tourist trail. The cloisters and major public rooms of this former monastery are stunning,...More

Slightly away from the main sites, San Marco sits in a bustling square, where most of the city's buses seem to terminate. However, once you have stepped inside the door of the museum, peace reigns. It feels as if you have stepped back in time...More

A plethora of work by Fra Angelico in each cell. On the stairs going up is my favorite Fra Angelico, the Annunciation which is stunning. Plus the actual cell in which Savonarola occupied, and also the cell used by Cosimo il Vecchio, Lorenzo il Magnifico's...More

The library was particularly interesting in which the various stages of printing were explained and shown. The precudures involved in restoring the paintings were also really amazing.

No queues. Forget the Duomo complex. Visit San Marco . The monks cells ,all decorated by frescoes, generally in good condition. The magical Annunciation by Fra Angelico was the highlight of our visit to Florence.

The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a

surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking
students provides the tranquil surroundings for the
elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read
the daily newspaper. Home to several universities,
including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one
of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A
