We stumbled into this museum and the church without realizing its historical significance. We were also some of the only people there, which made it feel so personal. Fascinating museum and the art in situ is really amazing.

In a city with museums and churches all grubbing for entry euros, this experience is totally free. It is very accessible, just south of the Duomo. The church itself is small, but it has a most unusual altar. Worth a visit in itself. The statues...More

We came here almost by accident during a three day to Florence. We had tickets for the Uffizi the next day, we'd got a reasonably free day and it happened to be a Monday, and the Lonely Planet recommended walking tour of the city centre...More

This interesting church is free and very conveniently located. Go in and look around and read the helpful information board. If the upstairs is open, go up as there is a really good view.

Entrance at the back allows you into the church built around 1200. The exterior is good but the interior is where you really see the age. Well worth the slight deviation off the main street.

Time things well so that you can listen to some music.....excellent acoustics. Climb the steps if you have the energy! Some old masters outside with gold leaf in tact!

The gigantic and exquisitely carved Apostles statuary is nothing short of amazing. The acoustics are also fabulous. We heard two phenomenal singers and one highly gifted pianist in a setting that was truly the space of the gods. Gorgeous and worth a visit, music or...More

The history of this place is very interesting and certainly worth a visit. You need to climb steps so be prepared. I find all these places interesting with their history and the fact that the people of Florence care enough to keep these places in...More

The Orsanmichele church is interesting enough with its beautiful altar and the statuary (some original) by the Florentine masters on the outside. One can't overstate the significance of this place in the operation of late-medieval and renaissance Florence. However, if you visit on Mondays you...More

This Gothic church began as pavilion where grain was sold and eventually enclosed to become a church with grain stored on two upper floors. Most notably is the 14th century Madonna and Child in situ which is rare and a pleasant change from seeing these...More

Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
