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

We paid 6 euro per person to enter the Santa Maria del Carmine thinking we would have access to the entire complex. All we were allowed into was the Cappella Brancacci, plus another small room (Cenacolo) with a short video.... that’s it! Granted, the frescoes...More

This is Masaccio's masterpiece, who worked with Masolino; unfinished parts being completed by Fillippino Lippi. You have to book in advance, and you will be shown a video beforehand. This key work requires study beforehand; otherwise its importance will pass you by.

There is limited entry by time slots - good idea - but when we were there it was not crowded and this process was not necessary, just held people up. Since we had the Firenze card we took the walk over to take a look....More

Of the many places we visited on our trip to Florence, this was our favourite. These frescoes are just stunning. Painted over a number of decades in the 15th century by three different artists they were last renovated in the 1980s. The colours are fresh...More

It's not so much the church, but The Brancacci Chapel that is a must see. This was the most influential set of frescoes of the early 1400's. Frescoes designed by Masolino da Panicale, illustrate the life of St. Peter. He began painting them with his...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
