“My favourite view of Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

Quiet and peaceful place, my favourite church in Florence. Only five minutes to go from Piazzale Michelangelo and half an hour from Ponte Vecchio (nice walk, with great views of the city)

“Attractive church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

An attractive church that is visible on the hillside from within the city of Florence and gives a fantastic view back of the spread of the city. Stylish on the outside as well as inside and you are surprised at the large size of the interior.

“Nice view and church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

Much nicer spot to enjoy the view of Florence compared to the nearby piazelle Michaelangelo. The church is beautifully decorated in the Tuscan style on the interior. A local was playing the organ when we were there on Good Friday and it really added to the atmosphere.

“Well worth the walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

This is a lovely little Church reached by quite a long walk, but well worth it, for the views. If you are lucky enough, like we were to visit as the Monks were chanting, it is very special.
