Opposite the commercial fashion hub (Ferragamo) at the intersection of the via Tournabuoni and Ponte Santa Trinita is this relatively small and quiet church with a Baroque facade. In the back right corner is a fascinating, vibrant fresco cycle by Domenico Ghirlandaio depicting the life of St. Francis. This is old school Italy... the paintings are not illuminated unless the...

Although Florence contains a surfeit of museums and churches containing Renaissance art, this church is worth visiting in order to see works by Ghirlandaio. Apart from his frescoes on the life of St Francis, there is also his magnificent painting of the Adoration of the Shepherds.

A large quiet church not on the tourist radar. The life of St. Francis by Ghirlandaio is special. There is also an early 15th century altarpiece depicting the Trinity by Mariotto di Nardo. Many chapels hold other works of interest.

Another street, another church. So many fantastic churches in Florence - try and see at least a couple before you leave. This one has quite a plain facade, but its well worth a look.

Compared with many other churches in Florence, the façade of the Basilica di Santa Trinità is nondescript, almost invisible. It’s in a great part of town where Via dei Tornabuoni passes through Piazza Santa Trinità, and my wife and I had probably walked right by it 50 times over the years before we even took note of it and went...

Entering the church is free, the Sassetti Chapel is on the right of the main altar. You can put a coin in the small box on the left wall to turn on the lights.

Allot of the regular sites were closed. We were strolling the city to see what we could find and this church happened to be open. Wonderful frescoes that were showing some age. Just a hint. Look around and up at the buildings as you walk the streets. You may see some things that are not on any tour map but... More

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
