This is a true hidden treasure in a city that is brimming with fantastic historic and cultural gems. I was fortunate to be taken there by a friend in a car, as it is off the beaten tourist and unfortunately also public transportation path. Needless to say that I was all by myself in this lovely place, no entrance fees... More

The Museum of the Cenacolo of Andrea del Sarto is on Via di San Salvi. A bit removed from the city, getting there is a bit of a trip. Nonetheless a visit is recommendd as this museum is less touristy and houses some lovely relics and art work.

You'll need to take bus and still walk some to get to this "...way out there..." special Cenacola / Museum, but all of the efforts are worth it. The Cenacola is very infrequently visited by tourists even at the height of the season, so there is peaceful solitude as you gaze upon the great art and religious treasures. The best,... More

We were glad to visit this simple yet a hidden treasure of Florence. Far from the city proper, and not easily to access by public transport. But very rich in collections and It's FREE.

A bit of a nightmare to get to, involving local buses and a long walk, but in our experience you may well have the museum to yourself and can experience its exhibits well away from the overcrowded attractions of the rest of Florence. Most people will want to visit to experience the astonishingly well preserved fresco of Andrea del Sarto's... More

In Florence you´ll find some excellent examples of tuscan "Last Supper"´s, Gaddi in S Spirito, Andrea del Castagno in Sant´Apollonia, Ghirlandaio in San Marco and Ognissanti, but in my opinion Andrea del Sarto´s fresco in the refectory of San Salvi is the most important and most wonderful of the kind. The convent is peaceful and wonderful. If you come for... More

Visiting this museum involved catching a No 6 bus from Piazza San Marco - bus-stop called Lungo L'Africa and follow the signposts. Most people miss this museum as it is out of town - and let's face there is no shortage of things to see in the centre of Florence - but this really is a lovely museum with Andrea... More

In a small street a few bus stops from the center sits one of the most remarkable collections of paintings in all of Florence: great altar-pieces, pensive saints and an oasis of peace and quiet over which hangs the great "last supper" by Andrea del Sarto. Well worth the effort to get there, the entrance to this gem of a... More

The Cenacolo by Andrea del Sarto is the 5th on my list of Florentine Last Suppers. The museum del Sarto is quite far from the city center, Ataf bus number 6 is the most appropriate to/from santa maria novella. The Last Supper, the tomb of Ilaria del Carreto, other frescoes and huge portraits will make your visit a pleasant one.... More
