Description

Which is the church that gives the name to the great train station in Florence? Do you know its story? Do you know the treasures hidden inside?

Just a 5-minute walk from the Duomo (Cathedral) in Florence, right in front of the train station, Santa Maria Novella Church stands out as a monumental building.

During our 90-minutes tour, famous paintings, great characters and hidden masterpieces will take shape: from the perfect Renaissance façade passing through the Gothic Florentine style of the church to the foundations of Renaissance painting, Santa Maria Novella Church is going to bring you through an overwhelming excursion deep inside Florence’s history.

Admire the Trinità by Masaccio or the magnificent Tornabuoni Chapel frescoed by  Ghirlandaio or the majestic Spanish Chapel on a guided tour that will leave you speechless.

Appreciate the perfect use of perspective and geometric games: Is it true that the distance between the columns closer to the transept is shorter than the distance of the ones near the façade?

Masterpieces perfectly preserved from 1300 to the present day, survived to floods, natural disasters and wars will be at your disposal during a tour that reveals the hidden sides of the Dominican Church, always enemy of the Franciscan SantaCroce Church.
