The small church of Santa Felicita was used by the Medici family dukes and holds the Mannerist artist Pontormo's masterpiece, "The Deposition." The unusual colors, exaggerated poses and expressive portraits are an unforgettable theatrical scene..

We visited this church after we were able to see the Medici balcony on our tour of the Vasari corridor. The visit was free but closed about 15 minutes after our arrival, perhaps for lunch.If you are in the area, do drop in to visit....More

Enclosed as it is in a locked chapel, visible only through iron railings, I feel that I have never really been able to experience this important Mannerist work in anything like an enjoyable way. I don't know why it has to be exhibited thus and...More

This is a lovely little church on the Oltrarno, but its star attraction is an amazing Pontormo painting that is just to your right as you walk in. Don't miss it! The hours are sketchy, and the church is usually closed on weekends, but make...More

We attended Sunday Mass here and it gave the visit a different context than what we usually feel when we visit churches. This is a living church with 400 years of worship history. Very beautiful and vibrant chapels and paintings.

Yet another wonderful church in Florence. Part of the fun of our stay was hunting down all these churches - there are so many and they are all different in their own way. This one is well worth looking at.

Do visit this church to see gorgeous frescoes by Pontormo! The frescoes are in a chapel to the right as one enters the church. Don't miss this church near the Ponte Vecchio. Do take a Euro coin to insert into a machine nearby to illuminate...More

This church is worth the visit just to see the painting but has many other qualities too. Beware of the opening hours.

An interesting church with the corridoio vasariano passing through its facade and with a window to this church for the Medici to hear mass without being seen. Visiting is free although the opening times could be a bit tricky. The church has a beautiful Sacristy...More
