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.

The Basilica looked beautiful at night during the X-mas time. Inside of the Basilica is gorgeous as well. We visited there during the low travel season so we didn't need to wait in line to buy tickets and enter the place, We enjoyed our trip...More
The marble facade, inlaid floors, and mosaics make this one of the most beautiful churches in the city. And it is on top of a hill across the Arno River with a fabulous view of Florence. I am so glad we went. Before we took...More
Fantastic old Church open to the public without cost. The church is decorated in white and green marble like most of the others around Florence. This one stands out from the sheer fact it is on the top of the hill.

This beautiful Romanesque structure is one of the most scenic churches in Italy . It was built in the early 1207 dedicated to St Miniato (Minas).
The walls now enclose a large ornate monumental cemetery and an old fortified bishop palace built in 1295.
Just outside the ancient walls of Florence, Viale Michelangiolo starts. It is a winding road rimmed by wonderful poplars and holm oaks. The long ascent opens up to the most beautiful and famous panoramic viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and breathtaking view of the entire city from above. During good weather, Piazzale Michelangelo provides
visitors with a serene space surrounded by the amazing landscape, better if accompanied by a fresh gelato from a local kiosk. During night, visitors will be dazzled by the warm lights of the capital of the Renaissance. Spend a second with the silent Romanesque beauty of the Basilica of San Miniato al Monte: the one that wishes good morning and good night to Florence!
