About Church of San Miniato

Die Fassade der Kirche San Miniato wurde zwischen dem 11. und 13. Jahrhundert erbaut und ist mit grünem und weißem Marmor in geometrischen Mustern geschmückt, die den Fassaden von Santa Croce und Santa Maria Novella ähneln. Ein Mosaik aus dem 12. Jahrhundert schmückt die Fassade über einem zentralen Fenster. Mit dem Rücken zur Vorderseite der Kirche kann man einen beeindruckenden Blick auf Florenz genießen, der noch höher liegt als der schöne Piazzale Michelangelo. Von dieser hohen Höhe aus kann man vom Dom und Palazzo Vecchio bis zu den letzten stehenden Teilen der mittelalterlichen Mauern sehen, die einst Florenz umgaben.

What People Are Saying

★★★★★

"We had an excellent day on this tour. We were picked up early from our hotel in a comfortable mini van. We were taken out to the Douro valley stopping to look at some spectacular views. Throughout the journey the tour guide explained the countryside, the environmental conditions that suit wine making, the history of the area and of the development of port wine. We visited 2 wineries, one larger one that supports one of the large Port makers in Porto, the other a smaller private family run winery that produces wine, olive oil and honey. We had lunch in a local restaurant. We had an hours cruise on the river, in a traditional wooden boat, used in the past to transport the wine down the river to Porto. An excellent day altogether. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely recommend this tour."

"The tour is a wonderful race around the backstreets of a district in Beijing. The individual eateries are small and definitely for the locals - not sure we could find them again. Food is excellent, we had a lovely guide explaining what was going on and the different cuisines, haring round in tuk-tuks through crowded streets. Definitely do it again."
