The Piazza di Ognissanti is located on the right bank of the Arno River, just to the west of the historic center of Florence, Italy. The monument in the piazza is “Hercules and the Lion” by Romano Romanelli, 1935, the work of a member of a Florentine family of sculptors still active today. Facing the Arno across the piazza is...

We love all his paintings and were pleasantly surprised to find out this was his burial ground. Bring your letter to leave for him since there's a basket for visitors to leave him their message. Also Ghirlandaio's Last Supper is here but currently under restoration and not available for viewing

Very quiet and sacred place. They have lots of beautiful but immaculate paintings or statues at there. Above all, crucifixion created by Giotto was worth watching. It was gorgeous and ornate but on the other hand, I felt something warm and gentle from this.

Beautiful frescoes by Ghirlandaio and Botticelli. Companion pieces: St. Augustine and St Jerome in their studies. The church is very quiet (check for hours) and offers dozens of important pieces. Don't miss the Last Supper fresco in the Vespucci chapel... Florentines say that one of the family members depicted there is Amerigo Vespucci. And of course you should visit Botticelli's... More

There was a church service going on when we arrived around 10:30 on a Sunday. We just stayed for a short while - but the small church had an old quaint feel to it. We enjoyed the chanting that was going on while we were there.

We found this quiet old church regularly closed to visitors while "religious functions" were taking place. But as our hotel was across the piazza we eventually found a moment to look inside the dull grey facade. Hardly anyone inside but a Franciscan monk tending to his duties. It has beautiful 15th C frescoes and paintings, was the family church of... More

After having visited Florence countless times, I was advised to visit the 13th century Church of All Saints or Ognissanti on the street of the same name. It lies a few steps from the Arno river between Ponte alla Carraia and Vespuggi . Ognissanti is the burial place of the famous Botticelli and contains masterworks by him as well as... More

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
