Giotto, Uccello, Ghirlandaio and Massacio are the stars of this strikingly beautiful church. Buy a guidebook to make sense of it all, and don't forget to view the cloister.

There are so many similar churches in Florence with this style. The church is situated very close to the main Florence train station.

It's well worth having a look at this church. It's beautiful inside and you won't have to queue. The cloisters are particularly impressive.

Of course you could get a bus which stops nearby but you wouldn't get the same sense of satisfaction when you climb up to this very special little church on the south bank of the Arno. There are steps but you can also follow tracks...More

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

Yes. It's already very warm in Florence. We went yesterday and there was no issue at all with dress code. Unlike in Venice where women must cover their shoulders??
