We wandered in here on a Monday, and were lucky enough to find the museum open too. The church was spledid, small and quirky and the museum had some lovely statues and a great view of the Duomo - visit even if only for a...More

This is my second visit to this hidden gem in Florence. It is easy to overlook this church, but one should not. This church has a special story as a former granary and numerous masterpieces by some of the best artists in history. Go there!

It's not the most beautiful church in Florence but because it's a 30 second walk from Piazza signoria, which is a top attraction for sure, it's worth a visit for 10-15 minutes!. Unique and beautiful in it's own way.

This church began its life as an open air covered market and granary. When it was converted to a church the town's various guild's each provided the decorations which now adorn the exterior. Step inside and admire the beautiful frescoes and magnificent altar especially the...More

The church is lovely, immediately unusual in that it is divided half-and-half rather than something more traditional. Visually, it looks almost like two churches. It is fun to sit and pick out the tricks that designers used to convert this former grain market into a...More

From what I could gather this is supposed to be Florence's oldest surviving church. It's very pretty inside and has some interesting statues around the outside. It's also free to go inside. There is a museum which has it's entrance opposite the church entrance, but...More

Right in the middle of Florence - halfway between the Duomo and the Pallazo Vecchio - near the Piazza della Repubblica - right on the main drag, Via Calzaiuoli - and yet many miss it! The original church in Florence with amazing sculptures in niches...More

We came here on our honeymoon last week. I wouldn't pay to get in here, but the church is beautiful and the small museum is not only very nice but also has big windows with a nice view.

The Orsanmichele is located close to the city and shopping centre of Florence. It was converted from an open-sided building around 1380 AD by adding attractively decorated walls with lovely inserted tracery and tabernacles which are well worthy of close inspection. The internal museum has...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
