Yet another lovely church in Florence. The Santa Maria del Carmine is a beautiful church located in the Piazza Santa del Carmine. It has some really lovely frescoes in the Chapel. Lovely!

This church and convent was originally built between 1268-1475 and is located across the river in the Oltrarno neighborhood of Florence, Italy. Most of the church was destroyed by fire in 1771 with the exception of the old Sacristy, the Corsini Chapel and Brancacci Chapel....More

There is a Sunday mass at 10am this is sparsely attended. The church is lovely, worth walking around to see all the chapels.

Entry to the church is free. However, you cannot get anywhere close to the Brancacci frescos for which there is a separate entrance and fee. Nevertheless the church is attractive enough in its own right.

I've been to the Brancacci Chapel four times now and have never, otherwise, been in Santa Maria del Carmine. There are many more churches in Florence that have greater art to see... if you're there, of course, you can stop in. But spend the time...More

This church is located about 1 km from the Ponte Vecchio and access is not so good but it's worthwhile visiting here just to see Masaccio's famous fresco 'Expulsion from the Garden of Eden' which benchimarks the new expression of the Renaissance paintings.

Santa Maria delle Carmine (free entry) is located in the Oltrarno district and is where you find the worldly Brancacci Chapel. You can visit the church through its main entrance, instead of the side entrance which leads directly to the Brancacci Chapel. The church was...More

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
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
