It's not a place for the casual tourist, just for real art lovers. It has lesser known masterpieces of Florentine Renaissance, made by Andrea del Castagno. It is quiet, calm, not crowded, it's free to visit. Of course, the range of the exhibition is small,...More

This is effectively just a single (large) room but is very peaceful. Though it's listed on the Firenze card it is in fact free but get there before 1300 to be sure of entry. Dominated by the Last Supper but other interesting works there, nut...More

There are many beautiful last suppers in Florence--2 Ghirlandaios, Perugino's, Andrea del Sarto's, but this one is beautifully restored and those psychedelic tiles! Don't miss it!

You can easily walk past this building as it looks nothing like a church/convent from the outside. Once inside, it's quite sparse but for the main reason for going. The Last Supper painting that stretches across the whole back wall is fabulous.

There are at least four "cenacoli" -- Renaissance frescoes of the Last Supper -- scattered about Florence. This one, by Andrea del Castagno in mid 15th C, is surprisingly modern with its very human depiction of the apostles and its trompe l'oeil marble. If you...More
