Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    What an amazing experience. Buy the earliest tickets you can, take water, and prepare to be awed by the awesome experience and we'll deserved view of the inside of the dome (silence please) and the 360 degree view from the top. When you finish, look back up and imagine where you climbed to get there. You will be surprised at where you climbed!

    There are several historical religious buildings in Florence. In my opinion, this one is the most beautiful, although others seem to be more popular. It is located on a hill, with very nice views of the city.

    Worth every penny just for the veiws. You can see the whole of venice from a great hight. You take a lift to the top and then you can stay up there as long as you want. We had to go but I would recommend staying till closing time just to see the sunset go down over venice.

    Basilica di San Lorenzo is one of the oldest religious buildings in the world, one of the most important sightseeing places in Florence.

    Beautiful building impressive and stunning!

    We only saw the outside as we only had a few days to see Florence.

    The only thing is we had to run the gauntlet of touts selling you tickets to get inside and all other sorts of things you didn't need. Every single time we walked past we got accosted by one of them...you politely say no but they are a nuisance!

    This museum / church is one of the highlights of our trip to Florence. It is a place that we have walked by dozens of times on prior visits and not even given a second look to. I learned of it by listening to a podcast called Rebuilding the Renaissance by coincidence shortly before we decided to book this trip.

    The church itself is pretty much meh. Nothing to see here really. But, their times visits include a mandatory 20 minutes in the church before being allowed to go to the museum. (I would recommend finding the podcast episode that talks about each of the statues and using that as a guide. while some of the details have changed since it was recorded, the status have not).

    The museum houses the original statues except for two Donatellos (one is at the Bargello and the other at Santa Croce I think..maybe SMN). There were so few people visiting this site and they rushed through very quickly. We spent the maximum time allowed in the part with the statues and it was a great experience being the only ones there.

    I don't think this would have been nearly as interesting if we had not had our own audio guide / professor talking to us. It went from what would have been another church and more statues to something very interesting and memorable.

    This is a beautiful chapel on the other side of the Arno that's easy to get to on foot.
    Tickets are available at the entrance and you have to show your Green Pass/CDC card for access.

    The frescoes have all been beautifully restored and it's very quiet inside which makes for a nice visit.

    The time there may be restricted but it's not exactly difficult to see & admire everything in the time slots provided. It's well worth a visit.

    It doesn’t take long to see it all but we’ll worth the trip. The museum is above the synagogue.

    The synagogue is beautiful. Late 1800’s opening.

    If you are into history this is for you.

    We stopped here on our buggy tour around Florence and our tour guide encouraged us to go in and right he was. What an amazing church. Every single painting is better than the previous one and the statues are outstanding. Totally not on the list of top attractions this church is an absolute must.

    Wonderful frescoes in the Cappella Sassetti :) and you have to pay to have the chapel illuminated but it's worth it. The frescoes seem to have been recently restored and the colors are fantastic. It's only a small chapel but be prepared to be amazed by Domenico Ghirlandaio's artistic genius.

    The Brancacci Chapel is the reason most people come to the church, and it must be accessed from a door to the right of the facade. The church itself is not without interest. The baroque illusionistic ceiling is a wonder as are the wonderful side chapels. You can peek into the Brancacci from the church itself, but you really cannot see the frescoes well unless you book a ticket at the ticket booth for a separate entrance into the chapel. If you are going to the chapel itself, you would do well to catch the rest of the church.

    Tucked away from the chaos, discover this lovely church. It is peaceful. The church is lovely inside and the perfect opportunity to refresh.

    This church, located just off a main street between Stazione di Santa Maria Novella and the Duomo complex. It is dated from the 8th century and rebuilt in the 13th century. It has a central Nave separated from the aisles by pointed arches. There are many frescos attributed to both Cione and Nardo. This seems to be a rarely visited church in a city of many churches.

    The cenacolo Sant' Apollonia is now a museum essentially dedicated to one piece -- the masterpiece Last Supper by Andrea del Castagno. If you are in the neighborhood, quite near San Marco, you really must stop by the Cenacolo (it's free) to see the fresco. Beautifully restored and, especially in terms of the design of the apostles at the table, a very influential composition. Very highly recommended... a real hidden gem.
