This is a lovely church with a free entry close to the river. It was completed in the 1250s, but rebuilt around 1627 in Baroque-style. Sandro Botticelli is buried here. Ghirlandaio 's version of the Last Supper is open for viewing on Mondays only.

The famous fresco, made in the late 15th century by Domenico Ghirlandaio, is housed in the refectory of the Church of Ognissanti, located between the two cloisters. The scene is pretty similar to the one painted by Andrea del Castagno a few decades earlier for...More

We happened to be out one afternoon and noticed Ognissanti was open and so went in. It’s a very lovely church, free to go in and well worth a look. And on a hot afternoon it’s a lovely cool area too

Unfortunately, the Church of Ognissanti was closed on May 1st, which is a public holiday, but we were pleasantly surprised by the fact that the refectory of the Convent of the Ognissanti was opened and this where the beautiful Ghirlandaio’s fresco is. The freshness of...More

Ognissanti is an almost "must see" church in that it is no Santa Croce or Santa Maria Novella. But it does have a good Botticelli and a good Ghirlandaio. Also, Ghirlandaio's Last Supper is in the church but it was closed when I was there,...More

You wouldn't expect the beauty inside from looking outside. A must see hidden delight of Florence. Botticeli's tomb is so discreet it took us ages to find it.

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

Dropping Rental Car in Florence (2 Replies)
DH and I are driving from Switzerland to Florence on 10/8. Want to drop off rental car in Florence before beginning our stay there. Have found a car/price from Auto Europe, but are confused about drop-off locations. We are staying at the Hotel Beacci Tornabuoni. There are several drop off locations on Via Borgo Ognissanti, which is not too far from the hotel. Plan is to drop off car and take a taxi to hotel. Are these locations on Via Borgo Ognissanti considered part of the city center...More

Getting to Borgognissanti is most likely to get you into the traffic limited zone. And the fine is for each time you cross the gates. You could ask your hotel to register you car with the police, but I wouldn't try it.Either drop at the airport and take a taxi into town or plan your itinerary so you can drop the car and take a train into Florence.

Driving after Florence to Siena, then Parma and Milan (3 Replies)
Hi all, will appreciate your advise. My first time driving in snow weather. Be there 3rd week Jan. Initially intended pick up from Europcar Florence via Borgo Ognissanti. After reading the posts here, I'm thinking it will be less risky if I flag cab to Florence airport instead to pick up after leaving Florence. From airport, will drive to Siena. Then to Parma, and off to Malpensa for flight out. Should I pick up car from Florence airport? Or Borgo Ognissanti is safe from ZTL? Or take bus...More

There is a train that connects all the places you mentioned and that runs under the mountains faster than any car. If you have never driven in the snow and in the fog (that's the real problem after Bologna) all other drivers would be very happy if you made experience somewhere else and took the train.

AutoEurope does not always show the office on Via Maso Finiguerra, about 400 meters south of the train station, but there is one there. You can call their 800 number and confirm that. We usually pick the car up there and they give you excellent directions and a map to get out of Florence and onto A1. Takes about 15 minutes to get to A1. italybound@verizon.net
