While it may not look like much from the outside, the elaborate interior of Brunelleschi's landmark church proves that it is a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture.

This basílica is beautiful. It is big, full of art, beautiful architecture and holiness. Another masterpiece done by Brunelleschi. There is a new "percorso" where you can visit the cloister and see the Crucifix by young MichaelAngelo. I suggest you do it. This is one...More

it's located on a really nice piazza Santa Spirito, a great hang out spot for a drink, a bike ride, etc. So the church is worth a visit (once) but it's nothing special

This renaissance church is at first glance quite simple as the facade wasn't finished and is still only a rough plastered wall with an undefined silhouette at the top. But the inside will reveal some interior that is one of the finest examples of Renaissance...More

Quick trip inside the Sanyo spirito, entry by donation. You can see the Michaelangelo wooden crucifix from inside but for a closer look wander to the left of the main entry and pay 3euro for an up and close look. Almost no one visits here...More

When visiting south of the river we were advised to visit here by the guide who took us round the Uffizi, primarily for Michelangelo’s crucifix and it did not disappoint. One key point is the intermittent opening times of 9.30AM till 12.30PM and 4.00PM to...More

The highlight is to view the crucifix in polychrome wood carved by Michelangelo in his younger days. It is breathtakingly beautiful and anatomically perfect. The only annoyance was that taking photos is not allowed, even without flash. Couldn't understand the reason for this restriction.

Worth the walk. Serene interior with some magnificant frescos namely the Brancacci Chapel. Who can never forget the Expulsion of Adam and Eve? Heart breaking. There is a special fee and door to go into the Brancacci chapel, walk right in with Florence Card

This is Brunelleschi too, like the living breathing cupola of the cathedral and San Lorenzo. Maybe he's the greatest architect who ever was, maybe just the great Italian Quattrocento architect, but you must see it outside and in.

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria
