This extraordinary structure testifies to the historic evolution of the city, which once served as a granary in the gardens of the Sisters of San Michele during Florence's mercantile period.

We just happened to be walk in to the Orsanmichele Church on a Saturday and it looked like the doorway to the second floor which leads to the museum was open. The museum is only open on Mondays so I was very surprised to see...More

A stunning interior & important location in the history of Florence's rise to power in the 15th century. Be aware that one apparent entrance to the church is actually a ticket sellers - you need to go round th eother side to get in.

Definitely worth checking out. And it's free! Walk around the outside and admire the statues. Then go inside. Beautiful. As others have mentioned, an old granary (can still see some of the grain chutes on the pillars) that was converted into a church... the church...More

What a fabulous place and visit. We almost missed this as it wasn't on the main list of attractions. We had Saturday afternoon free so we went as a fill-in. Glad we went, it was amazing. It's free so make a generous donation. For me...More

Lovely little church, great museum, spectacular views of Florence from the upper floors. When I went it was only open on Monday mornings but that may now have changed.

This was a grain hall, transformed into a church. There are 2 fascinating altars, free entrance, and a place to sit!

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
