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

Santa Trinita is a Roman Catholic church located in the Plaza of Santa Trinita. Outside is nice but not super extravagant but interior was quite beautiful.

This church was another pleasant surprise after seeing a simpler outside exterior, to see a beautiful much more elaborate interior than expected. Easy to find as you work your way either to or from the busy city centre. The Piazza Santa Trinita was not a busy one. At a later walk through, they did have a solo singer playing an... 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.
