Churches of Florence

Florence, like many Italian cities, is filled with churches. But as the cradle of the Renaissance, it was specifically for many of these churches and family chapels that magnificent works of art were commissioned of the greatest artists of all time. Therefore, in order to see many of these masterpieces it is necessary to visit at least a few churches.

The churches are also the graveyards of the rich and famous. From merchant lords to knights and famous artists and scientists. Michaelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli, Dante and more.
