The sun came back today and it made walking around Florence much more pleasant. 

The Brancacci Chapel, with it's fantastic frescos was high on our list to see and it happens to be just around rhe corner from where we're staying. The outside of the church is very plain.

One of the most important locations on both our lists to see in Florence was the Monastery of San Marco where Fra Angelico painted different scenes from the life of Christ in each monk's cell for contemplation. In the middle of the busy city, it's a very peaceful place.
