From what I could gather this is supposed to be Florence's oldest surviving church. It's very pretty inside and has some interesting statues around the outside. It's also free to go inside. There is a museum which has it's entrance opposite the church entrance, but...More

Right in the middle of Florence - halfway between the Duomo and the Pallazo Vecchio - near the Piazza della Repubblica - right on the main drag, Via Calzaiuoli - and yet many miss it! The original church in Florence with amazing sculptures in niches...More

We came here on our honeymoon last week. I wouldn't pay to get in here, but the church is beautiful and the small museum is not only very nice but also has big windows with a nice view.

The Orsanmichele is located close to the city and shopping centre of Florence. It was converted from an open-sided building around 1380 AD by adding attractively decorated walls with lovely inserted tracery and tabernacles which are well worthy of close inspection. The internal museum has...More

You'll notice this building in Via Calzaiuoli and probably most of you will only pass by. However, a three-floor church was not really common in the Middle Age, and it is not even now so it is worth to stop by and ask some of...More

There are so many things to see in Florence that you might overlook the Orsanmichele. We have been to Florence many times but this is the first time we visited. I am glad we did. The church started out as a place to sell grain...More

A truly beautiful church containing works of art commissioned by the various ancient Guilds. On its outside walls are a number of large-scale statues by renowned Italian sculptors, including Donatello, Brunelleschi, Ghiberti and Verrochio. Once inside, feast your eyes on the huge, splendid tabernacle in...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
