Leonardo DaVinci - Gracing the wall of the Santa Maria delle Grazie convent in Milan since 1498, Leonardo da Vinci's mural of the Last Supper invites viewers to contemplate how the Twelve Apostles felt in the moment after Christ predicted that one of them would prove a traitor.
Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella is one of the oldest pharmacies in the world. Founded by Dominican friars shortly after 1221, the year of their arrivaI in Florence, the pharmacy used medicinal herbs grown in the monastic gardens to make medications, balms and pomades for the monks' infirmary.
The Basilica of Santa Maria Novella is definitely worth a look if you have the time. It's the city's principal Dominican church, and is full of frescos from frescoes from Gothic and early Renaissance masters. You don't need more than 30 - 45 min to take in the whole thing, but don't prioritize it over other sites / churches if you're short on time in Florence.
