“Best thing I did in Florence”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

Most people talk about the duomo, but this for me was the best church in Florence. The duomo is amazing on the outside, but not so much inside. This one has amazing mosaics in the inside floor, walls and ceiling. Is is also a great spot to see the city from above and wait for the sunset.

“Beautiful View !”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Peaceful church on the top of the hill, quite a climb up many stairs but worth the effort. Nice park on the way up the hill that has beautiful views of Florence.

“Atmospheric”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

The quiet setting and Gregorian chant was enchanting but a long climb to the top. Take a cab. Church itself nice with a spectacular view.

“Lovely views over the city”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Well worth visiting at any time of day for views but particularly at sunset on a still day. The 19th century cemetery is interesting for a short wander.
