This was the first church we visited on our first day - so impressed. It’s a small church and destroyed in a fire, so not much inside, but what has been restored is beautiful.
It’s very discreet on the outside, you will miss it if...More

This church was rebuilt after a fire that saved the mosT important frescoes. It was rebuilt in the Baroque style but pales in comparison to others in the area. I thought the staff was not to welcoming.

A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria
delle Carmine churches. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.
