Saturday January 28 the Basilica will close at 4 pm. Reduced ticket for the rest of the museum itinerary purchased at the ticket office in piazza Stazione
The Monumental Complex of Santa Maria Novella comprises the majestic basilica and the adjacent Civic Museum hosted in the former convent's cloisters and the rooms giving onto them, including the Spanish Chapel, the Ubriachi Chapel and the imposing refectory showcasing a selection of dazzling vestments and furnishings from the basilica's treasury. Erected in the 13th century and enlarged down the ages, this Dominican complex still hosts such masterpieces as a Crucifix painted by Giotto, Masaccio's Trinity, a Crucifix carved by Brunelleschi and a cycle of frescoes in the Green Cloister illustrating Stories from Genesis, including in particular Paolo Uccello's celebrated depiction of the Flood.
On April 17th 2017 three new areas of the complex will officially become part of the museum: the magnificent Great Cloister and the Northern Dormitory, while the Papa Chapel will be open only on weekends as part of the guided tours organized by Mus.e
