I got the impression San Marco wasn't on most people's must see list, but it should be. It's incredible! And you don't want to miss the cell and personal belongings of the infamous Girolamo Savonarola.

The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a
stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence,
surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking

including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one
of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A
