Florence's Oltrarno: Why Visit the "Other Side" of the Arno
The Brancacci Chapel, one of Florence’s best art gems. Check out these gorgeous frescoes on a Monday from 10am-5pm. The Cappella Brancacci of the Church of Santa Maria del Carmine is a must-see because Masaccio, the “father” of the Renaissance, started frescoing it in 1424… only to die shortly after. Enter Filippino Lippi, who finished the work 66 years later. That means that the frescoes are not only gorgeous, but show two different moments in Renaissance art. walksofitaly.com
