This stunning church brings a peace as you enter. It is located on the South side of the Arno. It is a must visit and little known. It was a cloudy day and the feeling in the church was warm and inviting. There were fresh...More

Magnificent view of the imposing dome and bell tower from the Piazza di Ognissanti! Especially on a rainy day, when this austere Baroque church blends with gray color of the sky, heavy clouds and mirky waters of the Arno creating one more unforgettable view of...More

This is a beautiful church on the south side of the Arno in Florence. It is a very beautiful building and is best seen from across the river. Probably one of the most recognisable landmarks from that side of the river.

The San Frediano in Cestello church is a beautiful church in Oltrarno. Especially pretty at night, it is lovely when seen from across the river. It is also home to some really good works of art. Nice

Very pretty church in Oltrarno. The Borgo San Frediano is the road running near the church & it's a great stroll in the evening. Church is especially beautiful at night.

Went during Twilight hours. Best part was the proximity to the little beach along the river. Great place to get some quiet time, since most tourists have left by 4PM

San Frediano in Cestello is a nice church along the Lungarno Soderini. I think the most attractive thing is the exterior, with a nice architecture. The interior was a bit of a letdown because for the most part it seems like the church has been...More

This is a lovely church in the Oltrarno neighborhood. We happened upon it by chance after first viewing it from across the river. Inside we found beautiful artwork, a small garden, and a silent, reverent atmosphere. This is a true neighborhood church, existing as it...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
