This church, located just off a main street between Stazione di Santa Maria Novella and the Duomo complex. It is dated from the 8th century and rebuilt in the 13th century. It has a central Nave separated from the aisles by pointed arches. There are many frescos attributed to both Cione and Nardo. This seems to be a rarely visited church in a city of many churches.

Yet another beautiful church in the city of Florence with lots of beautiful works of art inside. Hop in, take a good look around, hop out. If you got 30 minutes to spare and appreciate art, give it a go.

The Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore is an ancient Catholic basilica that is considered to be the largest of the churches dedicated to the Virgin Mary in Rome. It is one of the city’s four major basilicas. Its interior is simply stunning with painting and marble sculpture by many famous artists in the Renaissance period thanks to the sponsorship by Pope. It is near the train terminal and hence is conveniently visited if you stay near the termini. Come early by 8am and you will feel the tranquility and beauty of this ancient artwork.

The oldest church in the city was originally built in the 11th century and refurbished in the 13th century, but the church here existed as early as the 8th century. The exterior is quite plain and simple, but in its elegant interior, there are some very interesting decorations and you can find the tombs of several prominent historical persons. I always have a feeling that the church is a bit forgotten among all those splendid buildings in the city, but it is well worth the visit.

Small church by Florentine standards that has the honor of being called the oldest church. Not much to look at from the outside, it holds some interesting things inside including a tomb of the renowned philosopher, scholar and Dante’s adopted father Brunetto Latini. It opens at 7 am, but closes at 12 for siesta, then opens again from 3.30 pm to 5.30 pm.
