Make the trek up to San Miniato. We took the bus, which was a lovely ride, and walked the rest of the way from David's plaza. It's hike, but it's worth it. We were there at 5pm in July, and there were only a few other people. The view is stunning, and you get it all to yourself! Check the church schedule and go to mass. When else will you get to watch monks sing in Gregorian chant in a basilica crypt? I know, it sounds dull, but it's actually really cool and a great way to spend a bit of time. Don't leave without visiting the gift shop. Everything is made by the monks, from the gorgeous pottery, to the handmade soap, to the delicious gelato (the best I've ever had). If you visit for the evening service, you can walk down the mountain and see the city in sunset. It's just lovely!

Man at the door looked my friend up and down and decided she was “indecent” and wouldn’t let her into the church for wearing an off the shoulder dress (Men were allowed in in tank tops and shorts) misogynistic staff were rude and left her feeling incredibly uncomfortable and self conscious :(

I wasn't expecting to visit this place. I came to the Piazza di Michelangelo to look at the views of Florence. I reached the top of the hill and sat down for a break in front of what looked like a closed church, and shortly after that the Basilica happened to open and the gathered tourists began to head in. So I joined them! If you are visiting the Piazza, it makes sense to head on a little further up the hill and visit the Basilica if it's open. Definirely worth a look around. Very peaceful, and architecturally interesting.

I went the previous evening to look down on the city of Florence from high up - in Piazza dei Michelangelo but the next night I made it up to this stunning church - the approach up the steps is stunning - but make sure you get there in time to go inside as it's one of the wonders of Florence
