I was eating opposite this place when I discovered it. If you're in Florence, walk into it and experience something different. (Viisted Aug2015)

Definitely my favourite church in Florence. Orsanmichele has fourteen tabernacles that are on the external facades. The tabernacles were decorated between the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries and each one houses in a statue of the patron saint of the guild. The statues are copies and...More

I loved this little museum. There is a nice collection of sculptures and at the top floor is the old granary. There are benches there to rest and admire the artwork. Feels very peaceful and welcoming there.

This small church was once a granary, adding to its charm. Take your time to look at the paintings and sculptures, and to light a candle.

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
