San Marco Museum Tours

In a city filled with famous art, San Marco Museum has the distinction of holding the largest collection of sacred art in Florence. Some of its more significant pieces include the works of Mariotto Albertinelli and Fra' Bartolomeo and a large fresco by Giovanni Antonio Sogliani, as well as Fra' Angelico's famous Annunciation on the upper floor. The monk’s cells are lined with beautiful frescoes meant to spur spiritual reflection. Another section displays a fascinating arrangement of sculpture and architecture, with a collection of old bells and fragments of demolished city center buildings.

The museum is housed in a former Dominican convent that was restored by the architect Michelozzo in the period of the De Medicis. Its light-filled library contains a collection of historic illuminated manuscripts, as well as a present day convent library with books on philosophy and theology. It stands as a well-preserved, excellent example of the architecture and atmosphere of a 15th century monastery.

Practical Info

San Marco Museum can be found in the Piazza San Marco.  It is open Monday to Friday from 8:15 am to 1:50 pm, with extended hours on Saturday. Entrance cost is €4 and cash is the only form of payment accepted.
