“Just make sure you don't miss this one”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

OK, there are a lot of churches in Florence. I've been in Florence 6 times now and just believe me on this one: don't miss this church. It's on an amazing location and has a real tranqility about it. Enjoy.

“"A little gem"”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

A beautiful little church which is well worth the walk to visit and the views of Florence are fabulous,
(NB you can catch a bus to Piazza Michelangelo which is just a bit further down the hill)

“Great views and quiet atmosphere”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

Well worth the climb up the steps outside the city walls. Absolutely stunning views of Florence. There are also benches outside the church if you need more time to soak the views in!

“Well worth the trip.”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

A gorgeous change from the huge churches in town. Also had a very interesting cemetary. We were lazy and took a taxi up but walked back. Try and find time to go there.
