What a fantastic day in Florence!
Our first stop was the Convent of San Marco, where the preacher Savonarola lived, and where there are many frescos by Fra Angelico. We were even able to see the very small rooms in which the monks lived, as well as a room full of Savonarola’s possessions (clothes, desk, etc.).
After some free time, we headed to Santa Maria Novella, where we saw the Strozzi Chapel, the Tornabuoni Chapel, and Masaccio’s Holy Trinity, which was a masterpiece of perspective, launching us into a new age of art.
Even though we were rained on, Florence’s beauty shone through!
