Guided visit to the Basilica of San Miniato a Monte

Guided visit to the Basilica of San Miniato a Monte

star-4

The Basilica of San Miniato al Monte is one of the oldest churches in the city. It is said that it was founded on the relics of San Miniato, one of the first martyrs of the city, who converted to Christianity and beheaded in 250 AD in what was once the Roman amphitheater. Legend has it that Miniato got up and, with his own head under his arm, went to die right in the place where the Basilica dedicated to him stands today. The church was consecrated in 1018 and is in Romanesque style: longitudinal plan, three naves and three levels, including the level of the lowered crypt and the raised one of the presbytery.

Take an aperitivo and explore Florence from above

Take an aperitivo and explore Florence from above

I will show you Florence at night when it becomes a real postcard! Every city is certainly very beautiful thanks to the shows that the lights create by drawing the contours of the buildings and making their colors and shapes stand out. Thanks to its ancient buildings that the great artists have left us, the shapes and colors of Florence illuminated at night are unique. A great contribution is given by the Arno river I therefore propose a visit to that Florence that at night becomes a real postcard. Starting from the famous Ponte Vecchio, we'll explore the history, the art but also some curiosities of Florence. We'll take a break for an authentic aperitivo and a sit for a short snack in a local bar before going to Piazzale Michelangelo first, and San Miniato then which is the highest point of the town Other things to note We must climb up some stairs to reach piazzale Michelangelo and San Miniato Church so wear comfortable shoes.
