San Miniato al Monte

Located atop a hill, with panoramic views of Florence, San Miniato al Monte is a Basilica like no other. Exemplifying Romanesque and renaissance architecture, San Miniato al Monte is beautiful to a fault, and the exterior façade adds a magical quality to the church with green and white marble colouring. Surrounded by lush greenery, and Cimiterodelle Porte Sante cemetery, this tranquil basilica is a holiday seeker’s dream destination. The legend surrounding the construction of this church also adds to its mystique, and touring this point of interest leaves one with a sense of awe.

  • Get in late at San Miniato al Monte, and listen to the Benedictine Monks chant; the public is allowed to listen to the Gregorian chants and be a part of this ancient ritual.
  • See the beauty of Florence by descending into this city from San Miniato al Monte; the picturesque views as you descend are unforgettable, and mesmerizing.
  • Tour the Piazzale Michelangelo, across Arno River from the heart of Florence; buy souvenirs from the many stalls in the square, and simply relax in the serene atmosphere of the square.

If you are coming across the Arno River, walking along Viale Galilei gets you to a series of stairs that will take you to San Miniato al Monte. But if you are coming in from other parts of Florence, the orange coloured ATAF buses in Italy can get you to any location. The Stazione di Santa Maria Novella is the main station in the city, and trains from various parts of the country stop here. Carriages, Vespas, double-decked tourist buses and smart-cars are also other ways to get to San Miniato al Monte or explore the city.
