San Miniato al Monte

If you ever go to Firenze, you'll probably get fed up with tourists. Then it is your turn: take the bus #12 towards Piazzale Michelangelo; it's quite a long journey from Santa Maria Novella Train Station, but it's worth it. You'll notice that the bus is going up a hill, tell the driver you want to stop at San Miniato al Monte.

Some steps later you will arrive at a little church. Once in San Miniato… Firenze is just at your back! The view from the top is just amazing! Don’t forget to walk around a small cemetery just at your feet. Then go to Piazzale Michelangelo, enjoy the views again, and look for a narrow path that leads you downtown. That route will offer to you a different point of view of the city you’ll never forget. That’s my memory of Firenze.
