Museo di San Marco in Florence: Beato Angelico, Savonarola and the Medicis
2-hour tour in one of the less famous and most impressive museums in the world: The Convent San Marco, with its cells of the Dominican friars and the cell where Cosimo The Elder Medici used to pray! Each cell has been frescoed by Beato Angelico, one of the great painters of the Renaissance and a friar himself. Here we visit the Refectory with the marvellous Last Supper by Domenico del Ghirlandaio, the famous Medici library and also the cell of the Dominican friar Girolamo Savonarola, who was burnt at the stalk in Piazza Signoria. His dress is still there, with the marks of the burning, more than 500 years old!
The astonishing Basilica San Marco is the burial place of Agnolo Poliziano and Girolamo Savonarola. Of course we'll visit it as well!
