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

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
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.
