  • I believe this church like many churches in Florence lovely Baroque that is not a genre I prefer, but the Tuscan Baroque represented by this church I must say it is really nice because not too heavy like the traditional kind! Church rich in frescoes and great sculptures inside, to see very carefully, besides this church is not so famous.

  • Tolna buooni Street North. On the way to the Medici Chapel, went to this church. Looked suffered from sickness, where the ceiling was frescoed lift like a transparent tape, it probably does not fall to repair.

  • Once it was dedicated to San Michele Arcangelo, in 1490 was named San Michele degli Antinori. In the middle of the façade there is the family crest Antinori cast iron painted in grey. In 1553 it passed to the Olivetans, and in 1592 the Theatines, which you annexed a large convent dedicated to San Gaetano Thiene, big operator of the Catholic Reformation. The statues of the two Saints are in two niches on the façade dominated at the top by the Medici coat of arms, because it was built thanks to the Grand Duke Ferdinando I and Cardinal Carlo de ' Medici, his son.

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.
