This little-visited church was one of Florence's most important churches during the Renaissance. Botticelli is buried here, along with his muse, Simonetta Vespucci. Don't miss the exquisite Domenico Ghirlandaio "Last Supper," the very one Leonardo da Vinci admired before painting his.

This beautiful church is located very near the Ponte alla Carraia and is well worth a visit. The artworks on the walls are simply sublime and are some of the best I've seen whilst in Florence. Not the showy artwork you will see in some of the more famous churches but just beautiful. The reason for only awarding 5* was... More

A lovely church in Florence with a very beautiful facade. Florence has hundreds of such churches and it is well worth having a walk around trying to find them

My wife and I arrived at La Chiesa di Ognissanti just as (an English-speaking!) wedding party was leaving, so we waited a few minutes before entering until the newly-married couple was celebrating with friends around limousines in the piazza in front of the church. We had gone to La Chiesa di Ognissanti especially to see the great artwork in the... More

Yes, the same Amerigo whose name our country took! This global navigator was buried here in the 15th century. His family were Florentines and worshiped here. The exterior of the church is nondescript but the interior contains some incredible frescoes including one by Botticelli (St. Augustine) who is also interred here. The church is not on the typical list of... More

We stayed across the street from this church. On our first day, we were walking around and decided to go in. My husband asked the monk if there was anything special or interesting here before we went in. He said no. We were pleasantly suprised to find out there is! Americus Vespucci and Botticelli are both buried here! The interior... More

An Italian relative of my husband took us here or else we would not have known the location or the significance. Some incredible works of art here and the remains of Botticelli. Worth a visit if you have a few days in Florence. Renovations are in progress so not all areas are accessible at this time.

If you are passing outside the church, at first you are not very impressed but when you go inside you find that is a lovely church with some nice art.

A beautiful church which is rather plain on the outside and I'm sure bypassed by many. But the frescoes and paintings are just brilliant. A huge Botticelli. Unable to see the Last Supper frescoe as it was closed. Well worth a visit.

The Chiesa di Ognissanti is a beautiful church in a lovely square in Florence. Quiet, full of peace and serenity and gorgeous facades. Definitely worth visiting

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
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.
