This is a very beautiful building inside, it has some lovely frescos. They do have some dress code rules with you respect when you enter a church but don’t let this put you off as it is a beautiful place.

This is an interesting building to visit, but will not take much of your time unless you have a great interest. A wonderful sense of calm as one would expect.

The cathedral is a lovely place to visit if you have time in Florence. There are so many places to see in Florence and this is just one of the many magical places to see. Well worth it!

The church dominates the lower area of the town. It is plain but this adds to its charm with its height bell tower. Inside it is quite dark but interesting. Worth a look if in the town.

The Cathedral of Saint Romulus of Fiesole is a hard building to get into. But well worth the effort as is only a 15 minuet bus ride from Piazza Saint Marcos in Florence on a number 7 bus. The Cathedral is dedicated to Saint Romulus,...More

This church was large and on the inside fairly plain. There are no large paintings, but instead has busts or statues down the sides of the church. Much of it is off limits, the altar area and the area where people prayer. It has nice...More
