  • On the top floor of this Church/Museum you can see the original statues that appear in copy outside the Church ... statues of Donatello, Ghiberti, Baccio da Montelupo ... "scultorini" I mean:)

  • Worth a visit for the original statues placed inside the Palace, from where you can enjoy a wonderful view over Florence. All free of charge thanks to the volunteers.

  • A little publicized wonder in the heart of Florence. A 1400 masterpiece not to be missed. Too bad that Sunday, I couldn't get one last prayer because of the incomprehensible intransigence of employees of the Museum that would not let me enter during the mass to light a candle. I find it depressing and probably detrimental to my "Christian right". I didn't want to do the turista.....ma I wanted to know ... mah!

  • Breathtaking sculpture on the first floor above the impressive ground floor church.
  • Just being here is worth everything spent to get here
  • Amazing marble shrine
  • Great 14th century church with great paintings
