Cool!

This interesting little church is a part of the walkway that lines either side of the River Arno. As such, it is quite unusual. It was under renovation, so we could not go inside.

Walking down the Arno you are confronted with a small chapel on the quay. There is no other word than just NIFTY.

Went to look at this church on a Wednesday at about 10 am but it was closed. Its external architecture is beautiful but could not appreciate its interior.

I saw photos of this small gothic church on the Internet before my holidays, so when visiting Pisa I walked there to get some photos, but sadly the entire building was covered in scaffolding as part of a major restoration project. I am sure it will be worth seeing when the restoration work is completed, but it's not in itself... More

Fabulous looking church alongside the Arno River. The church is probably one of the most outstanding Gothic edifices ever but, unfortunately, I couldn’t see much or even look inside because it’s currently undergoing major restoration work. So disappointing not to be able to see all its glory.

This looked like an interesting attraction so we decided to stop by. It is actually on a busy street with no parking near by. It is closed for renovation. The picture is also somewhat deceptive. It is actually a very small building: about 13m x 13m. It is cute but may or may not be worth the hassle of finding... More

Surrounded in scaffolding in Sept 15, but still interesting from the outside.can be easily reached via the left hand road from the rail staton to the tower. Also just by a bridge over the Arno.

Ciao Florence Tours really let us down by not booking or reserving the FREE tickets required to see the interior of this building. We were told only 15 minutes before arriving after travelling from Florence. Likewise the leaning Tower... Hopeless.
