San Miniato walk for sunset views

  • San Miniato walk for sunset views

    Set south of the river Arno, San Miniato al Monte is one of the finest Romanesque basilicas in the city. Perched atop one of the highest points in Florence, it is also a magical spot for viewing the sunset. For romantics, it offers more inspiring vistas than from Piazzale Michelangelo. As the church closes at sunset, ideally combine a visit with a scenic sunset over the city and surrounding countryside. The present complex dates from 1018 and is a fine example of Florentine Romanesque. Admire the green-and-white banded marble façade. The palette for Florentine facades was generally white marble from Carrara, pink from Maremma and dark green from Prato. Inside, seek out the Cappella del Crocifisso, a tiny vaulted temple, and the 11th-century crypt. If you’re lucky, you’ll catch the monks focused on Gregorian chant in the late afternoon, at 5.30pm in summer, but an hour earlier in winter. Either walk up to the top or catch the number 12 or 13 bus.

    Address: Via delle Porte Sante 34, Florence
