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.

San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a
stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence,
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
