There are lots of nice churches in Florence. The gem of Santo Spirito is the crusifix by young Michelangelo. It was in sepatate and peaceful small room. You need a special ticket for it, but it is worth of some euros.

In an attempt to get away from the crowds around Ponte Vecchio we took a side street and stumbled upon this piazza and church. The church is quite unassuming from the outside, though large, but a revelation upon entering. There were very few other people...More

A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria
delle Carmine churches. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.
