A short stroll from Piazza Michelangelo. Beautiful church - which my husband saw and I didn't as my shorts were deemed inappropriate. Fair enough! Cemetery is amazing, obviously the burial place of choice (?) for the wealthy and contains some absolutely wonderful statuary. We found...More

We went here based on the recommendation of a couple we met in a restaurant. This is one of the most beautiful churches we have seen. In the evening the monks sing a Gregorian chant. It was amazing. It was supposed to start at 5:30...More

This beautiful Romanesque basilica sits higher than Piazzale Michelangelo, so it has more panoramic views of Florence. The basilica itself has an incredible interior. There's also a very fascinating cemetery nearby. For me, this my favorite, must-see view of the city that gives me chills...More

Prepare to be surprised when you get inside. We stopped here as part of a day trip in a vintage Fiat500 tour. The guide gave a limited amount of information limited by the tour so I would say learn up about it before you go....More

If you visit the beautiful Basilica do not miss the herbalism store located at one end of the atrium. The monk make some serious botanical medicine. My wife suffers of sinusides and try it some of the medicine. Now she regrets not buying more.

Another bunch of staircases up after reaching Piazza Michelangelo closer to heaven and you can feel the holiness and devotion of this special place. Totally worth the effort on all levels; especially the view.

My partner proposed to me at this spot, and it was perfect! The view of Florence is amazing. It's a quick ride across the river if you're staying in the historic part of Florence. It's definitely worth visiting if you have time.

Beautiful church with stunning location overlooking the city, and the monks make artisanal products: creams and essences, soaps and honeys.

Piazzale Michelangelo
Just outside the ancient walls of Florence, Viale
Michelangiolo starts. It is a winding road rimmed by
wonderful poplars and holm oaks. The long ascent opens
up to the most beautiful and famous panoramic
viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an
elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and
breathtaking view of the entire city from above.
During good weather, Piazzale Michelangelo provides

Well you are a bit higher up..but if you dont want to climb up all the way, you can stay at Piazzale Michelangelo. Only the atmosphere at the church is very different. More serene and special and less tourists
