You wouldn't expect the beauty inside from looking outside. A must see hidden delight of Florence. Botticeli's tomb is so discreet it took us ages to find it.

The Ognissanti is a beautiful church on the other side of the Arno river. There are a number of famous people buried here including (as we were told) Botticelli. Nice artworks and a serene quiet atmosphere!

Very quiet and sacred place. They have lots of beautiful but immaculate paintings or statues at there. Above all, crucifixion created by Giotto was worth watching. It was gorgeous and ornate but on the other hand, I felt something warm and gentle from this.

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
