We had a great picture of the Chiesa, the river and the snowy mountains behind. It is a free entrance, it is small but it is worth it visit it.

Visible from a distance on a bank of the Arno, and compelling to visit, this tiny chapel is absolutely beautiful. Not always open but worth seeking out.

Situated by the river, this marble Church is so pretty on the outside with its marbled facade. Inside were originals of 13th century sculptures. A must see!

Whilst the thorn from the crown of Jesus has not been at this church for many centuries we thought we should still take a look . The exterior is outstanding despite all the work at surrounding area . Closed during the week unfortunately

Amazing construction on the outside, like a fairytale castle. Inside.. an art instillation comprising of a few metal blocks. Situated on the river Arno.

Thus church is right by the river and is much smaller than you expect. The architecture is amazing and incredibly ornate. The interior, however, is a complete anti climax. Legend stats that one of spikesof Christs crown of thorns once rested there however there is...More
