  • In the Uffizi Gallery in Florence brags about the fact that everything is in historical sequence. But it all begins with the Giotto and Cimabue. Notes the influence of Byzantium, but this is just the effect. In San Matteo all much more interesting. You can trace the transition from 13 to 14-th century. In Hall 2 (it's just a superstructure over the Hall Room 3)-simply Byzantine icons, then you can observe a gradual transition to the Western realism. We in Russia have maintained the tradition for a very long time (Andrei Rublev is 14 or even 15 21, if that). If you know what 4 crusade, know that the Arno River obmilila that Pisa did not participate directly in this infamy and so on, if you are familiar with the Byzantine painting-it will be interesting. If not, why waste time?

  • Museum very full in art of the trecento, impressive Romanesque crosses and pictures of the madonnas.

  • Strange museum with lots and lots and lots of pictures of Jesus. If you're into that, fair play, but don't go out of your way to visit. Let us in for free though which was ok.  more »

  • Really outstanding collection of medieval art, sculptures by the Pisanos plus Masaccios and Ghirlandaio. Really worth the 5 Euros and as a bonus no hordes of turists, one can really take the time to admire.
  • A hiden gem. Make time for it !
  • It is the most important Museum of medieval art in Italy, among the first in Europe. Many significant works, some unique and beautiful; exclusive collections of monumental wooden crosses, statues of wood and marble, and coins. Also collects the richest collection in the world of Islamic ceramic basins X-XIII centuries. Tickets cost 5 euro. The first Sunday of the month admission is free for everyone but is only open in the morning. Despite the number and relevance of the works, the Museum is undervalued and uncared for.

  • Wonderful collection of medieval art. Painting and sculpture. Only the great Hall of the crucifixes. I don't put 5 stars for the exhibition of works, dated and shabby. Definitely worth a visit

  • I call it my personal Museum "because every time I visit it is empty. In my opinion is one of the most beautiful museums and unknown in Italy. Too bad they can't relaunch: social tools now exist and are accessible.
