Why locals love it

San Miniato al Monte is in a storybook location and the view of Florence here is basically an enhanced version of the one down at the nearby piazzale Michelangelo—minus the vendors and food stands that tend to take away from it a bit.

Why you should visit it

Despite its striking white and green marble facade, the interior of the church is quite austere. It's peaceful and makes the perfect place to take a respite from the chaos of the city below. Next door to the church, the monks of San Miniato run a charming little gift shop selling soaps, rosary beads, homemade beauty treatments and more.
