Church and Museum of Orsanmichele is known for the sculptures of saints by the various guilds of Florence, distributed throughout the church. View the timeline of the sculptures, created between 1340 and 1602, to appreciate the shift from Gothic to Renaissance art. Artists, such as Donatello, Ghiberti, Brunelleschi, and Giambologna, created the pieces.

  • It's small, but well worth the 4€ to enter. It's a quiet church/museum, which means you have all the time and space you want to observe details of the church and statues. You can also get really up close to the statues in the museum, which allowed me to notice all the finer details I missed before). I recommend going in with Rick Steves' audio guide loaded on your phone to give your visit more meaning. Note that it's only open at very specific times on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
  • Great vibes thanks for religious music they played. Botticelli grave and lots of art. All free. Fantastic church.
