Owner description: Situated on a hill (monte) outside Florence with unsurpassed views of the city, this structure is one of the finest examples of Tuscan Romanesque architecture, built between the 11th and 13th centuries.

An attractive church that is visible on the hillside from within the city of Florence and gives a fantastic view back of the spread of the city. Stylish on the outside as well as inside and you are surprised at the large size of the interior.

Much nicer spot to enjoy the view of Florence compared to the nearby piazelle Michaelangelo. The church is beautifully decorated in the Tuscan style on the interior. A local was playing the organ when we were there on Good Friday and it really added to the atmosphere.

This is a lovely little Church reached by quite a long walk, but well worth it, for the views. If you are lucky enough, like we were to visit as the Monks were chanting, it is very special.

Situated on a hill outside Florence (Oltrarno district) with stunning views of the city, this basilica is one of the premium examples of Tuscan Romanesque style. Don’t miss it!!!

Just off Piazzale Michelangelo, San Miniato is a lovely site in its own right, but the views it presents make it a must visit place.
