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.

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 heavily renovated, but inside there are some nice paintings and frescoes. It's not a "can't... 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 has for centuries.
