Well, yet another Florentine church. What makes it special in my humble opinion is that from a purely and unmistakably renaissance piazza with its colonnades (plus Lo Spedale degli Innocenti) you enter the Basilica’s another columned atrium before you walk into a riot of wild...More

Such a cool place, with an amazing history. And a beautiful church! It was part of a walking tour that we did. Such a neat, beautiful experience.

This is not so much visited than other churches, what means also, that you have more time to look on the art works peacefully. It is very well decorated.

To be honest, I don't like the piazza upon which this basilica fronts and I know that colours my opinon of this basilica. I understand that the piazza is architecturally important, and that guide books suggest that it is a great place to hang out...More

I was too excited to sleep, so I venture out early. The Piazza has remarkably held it's medieval presence, with the church the highlight. Was a very peacful morning visit with beautiful religius art still drawing one's mind toward God after centuries in this church.

San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a
stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence,
surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking
students provides the tranquil surroundings for the
elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read
the daily newspaper. Home to several universities,
including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one
of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A
