I think this church, in the centre of town, very close to the duomo, is wonderful. There is nothing I like better than stopping here for an hour at the end of a running around day and listening to the organ concert that they have every night after 6. Heaven.

The Chiesa di Santa Maria dei Ricci is a lovely Church on Via del Corso Piazza del Duomo in Florence. The start attraction here is the organ and the incredible music that emanates from it. Lovely!

My 16-year old daughter and I were walking aimlessly throughout Florence one evening after our 'American dinner' at the Hard Rock Cafe nearby, and I heard beautiful pipe organ music nearby. We followed the sound and ended up in this small church out of nowhere! What made it approachable was that it was open access and you could sit wherever... More

I love, love, love this church! I found it quite by accident several years ago while visiting Florence and it was one of the first places on my list this trip. Don't miss an opportunity to visit and listen to the music!

The church has a free organ concert every night at 9:15 for 1 hour (small donation requested). The acoustics are fabulous - it's a small church and you feel like the music is inside you. Sort of a Phantom of the Opera quality. Well worth the visit.

We followed the sound and entered the church to listen to beautiful music for a while. Nice place to visit! I made a small donation as there was a sign that reads sth like "donate to keep this place running".

I didn't know this church existed before I was shopping and heared the beautiful sound of an organ in the streets. There was an organ concert which was worth the visit! The church itself is quite small, but it is decorated well. Next time I'll visit Florence, I definitely visit this church again!

We weren't planning on visiting this church, but as we walked past we could hear the organ playing and the signs on the front gate advertised a free concert (it was lunchtime). We entered the church and were immediately entranced not only by the music, but by the wonderful animated nativity at the alter end of the church. This was... More

The organ concert in a mystical, gorgeous church was one of the highlights of our last trip to Florence. The classical selections, ending with the "Ave Maria," were superb. The heavenly sound of the organ filled the church with such power and glory that I was profoundly moved.

Staying in Duomo

Neighbourhood Profile
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 as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
