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. Read about the history of the church as a 14th-century grain hall and how it was converted into a place of worship later on. You can tour the museum on the second floor, or make your way to the top, where a viewing room gives you a 360-degree look at Firenze.

  • Very interesting location, not very crowded, book tickets from ticketing office one day in advance. Ticketing office is around the corner. Views of Florence from top floor, and interesting art works can be seen. The collection consists of works by Verrocchio, Ghiberti, Baccio da Montepulo and Donatello, and houses the original statues, replicas of which can still be on the facade of the same building. The St. George original, which is a very important work by Donatello is not to be found here but at the Bargello upper rooms
  • It's beuatiful spot to visit. There's the church and the adjoining museum, containing the original statues, is included in the admission.
