The church and convent of the Carmine in Florence were founded shortly after the middle of the thirteenth century, by a group of Carmelite monks from Pisa. In the church we find the Brancacci Chapel, a masterpiece known around the world for its frescoes of the Life of Saint Peter by Masaccio and Masolino. Created between 1425-1427, the frescoes were left incomplete and finished by Filippino Lippi between 1481 and 1482

Don't miss the stunning early Renaissance frescoes in the Brancacci Chapel. The frescoes, which depict the Life of St Peter, were painted in the 15th century by Masolino, Masaccio and Filippino Lippi. In particular, the panels painted by Masaccio, such as the Expulsion of Adam...More

Masaccio (and Masolino and Fillipino Lippi) began this masterpiece in the early 15th century, and later artists studied it before embarking on their careers. Magnificent work and great chance to see Florentines during the 15th century.

Small museum and cloister on the Oltre Arno in a less touristed area of Florence. This is a very manageable museum in which our family spent the better part of an hour. The English Audio Guide Ipod (free with admission) is excellent and takes you...More

The frescoes depicting various scenes from the life of St Peter by Masaccio and Masolino are lovely examples of early Italian Renaissance Art. We greatly enjoyed the experience, particularly seeing "The Tribute Money" and the "Expulsion of Adam and Eve". Be warned that only a...More

A wonderful opportunity to see truly stunning frescoes. The fact that it is located in a quiet part of the city is a plus!

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
