Unsurpassed views over the city at sunset - right across the Arno to the cathedral.
We came in the evening, so the church was shut - but the views from the steps are worth it in themselves. Very few other people around at all, which would not be the case elsewhere.
It is a bit of a trek on foot but I think well worth it.
This was just a lucky find. Beautiful.
