Build with the money of Cosimo the Elder of the Medici, this monastery is deeply interwoven with the historic and cultural revolution happening in the mid-fifteenth century: The Early Renaissance complex hosts a museum dedicated almost entirely to the painter-friar Beato Angelico, who mediates between the innovations of art and his quiet spirit of devotion. We'll see Ghirlandaio's Last Supper and the works of Fra Bartolomeo.

San Marco is generally a very quiet place, away from the big crowds you find at the Uffizi or just next door at the Accademia.
