Map
3 Piazza San Marco, Florence, 50121

Housed in a former 15th-century convent, this museum contains the largest collection of frescoes by Fra Angelico, a Dominican monk whose religious works so impressed the pope, he beatified the friar. Look for his inspiring depiction of the Crucifixion on a wall in the Chapter House.
