    I suppose the top ten are predictable, but I’m very surprised that the Brancacci Chapel in S. Maria del Carmine doesn’t figure. I also happen to enjoy Andrea del Sarto’s Last Supper in the refectory of San Salvi, very well worth the long walk.

    • These are great suggestions as well! the top 10 reflects the ones with the most votes, but the Brancacci chapel and the Last Suppers certainly deserve to be up there! Have you been to see the other Last Suppers in Florence and does San Salvi remain your favorite?
