Cheap hotels near Museo di San Marco in Florence, Italy

The Museo di San Marco, located in the Convent of San Marco, is an impressive museum located inside the San Marco complex of religious buildings.

The museum houses a major collection of work by Fra Angelico, one of the former residents of the convent and a masterful painter. In addition, San Marco offers a library with a vast collection of manuscripts.

The on-site convent, which is of Dominican origin, was consecrated and founded in 1436, although most of the buildings were later constructed during the 16th and 17th centuries. (Savonarola, the feisty Dominican friar who denounced Renaissance extravagance, was also a resident of the convent.)

For tickets and exhibits, visit the museum’s Web site.
