    I did not like, not frescoed altar, little to see, did not so much art to see, avoidable, it is not a must. Has the remains of the ancient Church.

  • Nothing fancy compared to other churches in the city but small and genuine. And free entrance!
  • Very interesting a beautiful Madonna .
  • Worth spending a few minutes away from the crowds to enjoy the frescoes and quite atmosphere.
  • Unforgettable silence in the middle of the City. Wonderful place with a smell of 1100 of history.
  • One of the oldest Roman Catholic church in Florence.

Where to stay in Florence

Variety is not a problem when deciding where to stay in Florence. The compact town center is packed with hotels, hostels, and small inns. The drawback of this upmarket central area is that even family-run B&Bs often cost as much as luxury hotels. For more affordable lodgings, explore the area outside the tourist-driven city center. Staying in one of the city's residential neighborhoods allows you to immerse yourself in the daily life of local Florentines. B&Bs and hotels outside the center offer private parking and spacious rooms, all within walking distance of the main tourist sites.
