Medici convent with an art historian

Florence, Italy

Experience hosted by Valentina

2 hours
Includes drinks
Up to 6 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Together we will visit this convent in the heart of the city of Florence. I will tell you all about the connections between the place and the Medici family's rise to power. The convent is now a museum, but very off-the-beaten-path. So we will be able to enjoy the peace of the religious building and the art of Fra Angelico, a master of 15th Century Renaissance art.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are interested in the experience but you don't find it programmed for the dates when you are in Florence, please write me and I will try to reschedule it for a time more convenient to you.
Other things to note
Even if the visit is inside a Christian convent and church, people from every religion are welcomed to join the experience.

Greetings to everyone. I studied art history at the University of Florence and I graduated with a MA in history of art. I work as a professional licensed tour guide of Florence. I have a personal predilection for this quiet little corner of Florence, and I would be thrilled to share with you the interesting history of the Medici's convent and to show the spectacular collection of Renaissance art that the museum displays.
