Your AGT guide will lead you to discover two great sites on the South Bank of Florence: the Basilica of Santo Spirito and the Brancacci Chapel. This tour has been planned by our AGT guides to increase awareness of the South Bank – a veritable Florentine treasure. The basilica of Santo Spirito is a beautiful example of early Renaissance architecture, by the great Brunelleschi; your AGT guide will tell you about its foundation and how it came to be built, but most importantly will take you inside to discover the wonderful works of art, the most notable being the wooden crucifix by Michelangelo, in the vestry. The next item on the walk is another important site in the history of Florence and of the Oltrarno or South Bank: you will visit the Church of Santa Maria del Carmine, where the famous Brancacci Chapel is. A perfect jewel of renaissance painting, which, thanks to your AGT guide you will be able to admire and understand the splendid 15th century frescoes by Masolino, Masaccio and Filippino Lippi. This tour truly offers you an unmissable opportunity for getting to know the South Bank and early Florentine renaissance.
