This little-visited church was one of Florence's most important churches during the Renaissance. Botticelli is buried here, along with his muse, Simonetta Vespucci. Don't miss the exquisite Domenico Ghirlandaio "Last Supper," the very one Leonardo da Vinci admired before painting his.

The monastery of Ognissanti was founded by brothers of Humiliati in 1239. It was then renovated by the Franciscan since 1561. I consider it a must-see. Frescoes are beautiful and you will see a representation of the last supper which is perhaps one of the...More

The Chiesa di Ognissanti is a stunning place. Beautiful architecture and spectacular sculptures, paintings and a range of other artifacts. This is something not to be missed. The floor may be simple enough, butt the walls and the ceiling in particular, are stunning. No steps...More

Of course, go and look at its mastepieces (Giotto, Botticelli, Ghirlandaio etc.). Visit the burial places of Vespucci, Botticelli, the Bonaparte Chapel. But do not forget to look at the ceiling from all angles: it's a magnificent lesson in the use of perspective on inclined...More

Work by Botticelli and Ghirlandaio including the latter's stunning Last Supper in the Refectory (odd hours). Mostly unknown is the location of Botticelli's burial place at the foot of the tomb for his unrequited love, Simonetta Vespucci. The lunette above the painting on the right...More

Another beautiful church. This one contains an outstandingly beautiful crucifix by Giotto, that should not be missed. Also here, by Ghirlandaio: a Madonna Della Misericordia fresco that shows members of the Vespucci family (including Amerigo), and The Last Supper. Botticelli is buried here.

The church itself has many great pieces such as a13th century crucifix plus another crucifix by Giotto dated 1310. The tomb of Botticelli is also here. But the real show stopper is the Ghilandaio Last Supper in the refectory. It is reminiscent of da Vinci's...More
