Renovated in the Baroque style in the 16th–17th centuries, it was damaged by a fire in 1771 and rebuilt internally in the Rococo style in 1782. The façade, like in many Florentine churches, remained unfinished. The vault of the nave has a trompe-l'oeil, quadratura fresco...More

We were so fortunate this trip to be here in October and to visit the chapel when it was ours alone. I don't know where all the tourists were, but the chapel was empty but for us...and what a sublime experience it was. The Massaccio...More

We came here to see the magnificent frescoes in the Brancaccio Chapel. Maybe there is something to see in the rest of the church, but we only visited the Chapel and it is a must see. Bring a guide book or google the Chapel (Wikipedia...More

There was no line or wait for tickets when we were there June 5. The audio guide is very good, well worth the 3 euros. The frescos have been restored and are spectacular.

Massachio's depiction of Adam& Eve's expulsion from the Garden of Eden is internationally regarded as the first such depiction in which the agony and shame of the moment was presented in such haunting detail. The pain on their faces is intense and unique in Renaissance...More

This is a wonderful church in a quite piazza south of the Arno. It also houses the Brancacci Chapel which is another must see when in Florence!

The big galleries are fine and have world class pieces, but it is even better to see art 'in situ' - in the context for which it was intended. There is no better example than the Brancacci Chapel in the church/convent of St Maria Del...More

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
