This little-visited church was one of Florence's most important churches during the Renaissance. Botticelli is buried here, along with his muse, Simonetta Vespucci. Don't miss the exquisite Domenico Ghirlandaio "Last Supper," the very one Leonardo da Vinci admired before painting his.

This SUPERB church crowns the beautiful piazza with the same name flanked by 2 of the most beautiful facades in Florence. The church with its wonderful decorations, peaceful atmosphere somewhat away from the main touristic circuit is a wonderful place to revel in the beauty of its stunning interiors, meditate and if so inclined, pray just few minutes away from...

This was the first church in Florence I went in where there were more religious people (in this case monks) than tourists. Having them walk around in their robes and sandals going about their daily business, whilst monk music (singing) was going on in the background made this feel more like a church should - a place for people dedicated...

We discovered it by an accident on our first trip to Florence when we were looking for directions somewhere. The person we asked for help asked if we have been to Chiesa Ognisanti; we said no, so she told us about Ghirlandaio's "Last Supper" fresco. We've been to Da Vinchi's "Last Supper" in Milan, but this this church stands out... More

I made three attempts to go and see this church to get inside but never found it open. It is very quaint from the outside but you need to get opening times to save yourself the journeys I did as it's a 10 minute walk outside of the main attractions.

In my opinion, Ghirlandaio, more than any other artist, symbolizes Florence at its peak. His work (and that of other masters) is on display here in this pretty church. His St. Jerome, on the left wall, is a fine example (note the spectacles on the table). However, in the cloister is Ghirlandaio's Last Supper. What a masterwork this is, with... More

Be careful with the visiting times but if you can visit this church and the burial place of Botticelli and of the Vespucci family. You will see also a beautiful Giotto Crucifix and two Ghirlandaio. However I was disappointed as the Last Supper of Ghirlandaio was closed and I could not see it.

Famous church in Florence. Famous for works by Giotto as well as his last resting place. Don't miss the Last Supper fresco supposedly which inspired Leonardo's Last Supper..is near the cloisters

Our hotel was quite a walk from city centre, but one nice thing in those situations is that if you take time and walk and wander, you do come upon some wonderful places and things. Chiesa di Ognissanti was one such place and looking at the outside, it was surprising to enter and see such beautiful works of art within.... More

One of a number of Florence churches which are well worthwhile visiting and which are all within easy walking distance of each other. Added to this, if I remember correctly, it's free so those on a very tight budget who just want to see some examples of fine frescos might opt for this in preference to the more well known... More

Very nice church with tomb of Boticelli. Interesting history with tombs of Vespucci tombs. Just another of the fascinating wonderful churches in Florence. Not always open so check the hours.

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
