    Wonderful recommendations! I agree, wholeheartedly. Nice photo of the Michelangelo in Santo Spirito. I was scolded by a security guard when I tried to take a photo! While you’re in the neighborhood, check out the Brancacci Chapel in Santa Maria del Carmine. If interested, I’ve written about it in my blog,!Face-of-the-Renaissance/rrfqp/571bfcb00cf2dd6f7fca3ee9. In my opinion, the views from San Miniato are the best in Florence.

      Thanks for the kind words, Diana! Yes, I was fortunate to find that photo, as I too was unable to snap a good picture while there. 🙁 The Brancacci Chapel is another incredibly-underrated site, which I’m shocked more people do not visit–especially considering how influential it was for many Renaissance artists, including Michelangelo. I will be sure to check out your blog.
