Rebuilt in 1627 the baroque style stood well in Renaissance Firenze on an atmospheric piazza flanked by two grand hotels The St Regis and the Westin Excelsior. Three items make this church worth a visit: First is Botticelli’s tomb where he is buried near his...More
Unfortunately, the Church of Ognissanti was closed on May 1st, which is a public holiday, but we were pleasantly surprised by the fact that the refectory of the Convent of the Ognissanti was opened and this where the beautiful Ghirlandaio’s fresco is. The freshness of...More
In a City boasting so many wonderful churches, it was pure chance that we found Ognissanti.
From the outside you are more likely to pass by than actually venture inside, but if you do, I promise you will not be disappointed.

Ognissanti is an almost "must see" church in that it is no Santa Croce or Santa Maria Novella. But it does have a good Botticelli and a good Ghirlandaio. Also, Ghirlandaio's Last Supper is in the church but it was closed when I was there,...More
If we hadn't have being staying in the St Regis hotel on the last night of our trip to Tuscany we may have missed this gem
There was a choir singing outside when we passed earlier in the week which attracted our attention
The Ognissanti is a beautiful church on the other side of the Arno river. There are a number of famous people buried here including (as we were told) Botticelli. Nice artworks and a serene quiet atmosphere!

We love all his paintings and were pleasantly surprised to find out this was his burial ground. Bring your letter to leave for him since there's a basket for visitors to leave him their message. Also Ghirlandaio's Last Supper is here but currently under restoration...More
Very quiet and sacred place. They have lots of beautiful but immaculate paintings or statues at there. Above all, crucifixion created by Giotto was worth watching. It was gorgeous and ornate but on the other hand, I felt something warm and gentle from this.
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
