Such a special building saved from the river. Often special exhibits inside but worth seeing just the outside for its charm and detail

Walking from the train station toward the Leaning Tower of Pisa, before crossing the bridge across the river, many will find it almost impossible not to stop, walk down a just bit to see this beautiful little church close up. Part fairy tale castle, part...More

This is a nice stop before visiting the famous Leaning Tower. Midway between the train station and the tower, it belongs to the unique Pisan architectural style and shares some similarities with the tower. The interior is relatively austere.

We didn't go in but just admired the church from the outside. It's a tiny little place but the building has lots of detail. Many faces and beautiful spires. The road next to it has manic fast drivers so be careful if wandering into the...More

Passing buy on a wet Sunday we visited this very small church after reading about the history. I was a bit disappointed that it was no longer consecrated but the outside alone is well worth a visit.

But we only saw the outside. It is open 3 to 6 in the afternoon only so a visit needs to be planned, not random as ours was!

Located along the Arno riverbank, between Lungarno Gambacorti and the Arno it sits by itself. It dates from the early 1200’s and is gothic in style. Worth stopping by for a look at the intricate outside and the relatively spartan interior.

A cute little church which is easy to miss. There is nothing inside worth seeing, but it’s worth a trip across the river to have a look at the exterior. Difficult to photograph due to the road and shade, but very cute nonetheless.

We had a great picture of the Chiesa, the river and the snowy mountains behind. It is a free entrance, it is small but it is worth it visit it.

Visible from a distance on a bank of the Arno, and compelling to visit, this tiny chapel is absolutely beautiful. Not always open but worth seeking out.
