I passed by Orsanmichele in Florence on different trips, but it's closed every time. This was the first time I got inside. It's originally a grain market, later converted into a church used by Florence's trade and crafts guilds. That's why you see the different...More

Beautiful church, tucked in away from the crowd. The inside is really unique. After some marveling at the beautiful interior of the church, head up the short few flights of stairs up to see some fabulous sculptures. There is also a great view of the...More

Since this was originally built as a grain market in the 1200’s, it is not surprising that the exterior of the building does not look like a Church. However, there is a beautiful altar inside, and it is a peaceful sanctuary. Apparently there is a...More

Previously a grain store, this church-cum-museum is well worth a visit. The ground floor church is dark and atmospheric, with a great altar, while the sculpture gallery upstairs is a modern contrast, with great up-close viewing of the original sculptures from the exterior of the...More

This church with its convoluted history is an architectural gem not to be missed in Florence. Wonderfully decorated with an outstanding Madonna altar and at times peaceful interior is a great place for reflection.

Orsanmichele (Kitchen Garden of St. Michael) is a gorgeous church in the Italian city of Florence. The building was constructed on the site of the kitchen garden of the monastery of San Michele, which no longer exists. The best thing about this attraction is that...More

Four stars really doesn't do this justice but it does not rate as high on the scale as Santa Maria Novella or Santa Croce. You can't miss the exterior of the church as you walk from Piazza Vecchio to Piazza del Duomo. Tip: On Mondays...More

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
