San Casciano is very close to Florence with its many museums. But you can find interesting things to visit also in the San Casciano area.

Many churches (see complete list on italian wikipedia) are worth a visit for their history, frescos and decorations. Among them, the Church of Santa Maria del Prato (see info on Italian Wikipedia).

Museo di San Casciano

Formerly Museo di Arte Sacra, Museum of Sacred Art. It's now divided in three sections: religious art, archaeological, primitive houses.
