Santa Maria Novella
Thanks to an agreement between the Interior Ministry's Religious Buildings Fund and the Municipality of Florence, as of 10 November 2012 the monumental complex of Santa Maria Novella can be visited with a single ticket admitting the public to both the Basilica and the Cloisters. Visitors will thus be able to admire the entire complex without interruption, rediscovering the intrinsic unity of this extremely ancient Dominican convent.
The tour includes both the municipally-owned Museum of Santa Maria Novella (Cloister of the Dead, Green Cloister, Spanish Chapel, Ubriachi Chapel and Refectory) and the part of the complex managed by the Opera per Santa Maria Novella (Basilica and Cemetery of the "Avelli").
Visitors can also tour the magnificent Great Cloister, currently part of the Scuola Marescialli e Brigadieri dei Carabinieri, on special open days.
