This is a tiny church but well worth seeking out both for the glorious interior but also for the tiny square in which it is set. Crammed with history and art, just go!

It's a beautiful church, and they even have an English Mass on Sunday morning! I thought it was worth stopping in. It is antique and really has its own character amidst so many grandiose attractions in Florence. It is operated by the Legionaries of Christ.

This church looks small from the outside but goes back a long way inside. It is hard to find hidden down a narrow street but worth viewing.

times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can
reach the city center, the Florence that everybody
dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can
experience the rare beauty of the capital of the
Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio
