Overview
More
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

This chapel is small and visits are timed. And it’s stunning. The frescoes by Masolini, Masaccio and Filippino Lippi are stunning. So if this is the kind of thing you like, don’t miss it. If it’s not your usual stop give it a try and...More

You have a long walk to get to the Santa Maria del Carmine but it is worth it if you have time ( well away from other tourist sites)

You cannot miss this if you have any interest in Renaissance art. Yes Giotto might have started it all off but at the Brancacci Chapel you see the work of the genius Masaccio. Michaelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci came here to study the work of...More

This is one of Western art's great pieces. Entrance is well managed. The church is worth a visit on its own. There is a very good and informative animated introduction to the chapel which is worthwhile for someone with limited historical background but also those...More

Yes this may be a bit more expensive. And yes this is just a chapel in a church. But these Frescos were started in the early 1400s and painted by masters. They are a significant portion of our history and they are preserved beautifully. You...More

To avoid the crowds in central Florence, we took a taxi across the river to see the frescos. They are stunning. They are on the sides of a small chapel, maybe 15 feet across. You can stand in the middle and study all the paintings...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
