With the arrival of winter, many tourists have returned to their hometowns, which means the city is quieter and much less chaotic, making it a lovely time to enjoy Florence. Visitors usually head first to the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio and Uffizi, but there are so many other noteworthy historic sites that do not make it into the top travel guides. So grab a map and explore the other treasures of Florence.
Sant'Ambrogio is a small, quaint, simple church on via Pietrapiana. However, the art inside is rich and plentiful, and the feeling one gets stepping inside the doors is both welcoming and spiritually soothing.
