The Basilica of San Miniato al Monte
By: Jenna Phelan and Audrey McBride
The Basilica of San Miniato al Monte is a basilica in Florence, central Italy, standing atop one of the highest points in the city. We are visiting this basilica on our last full day in Florence. There is a fee of $20.00 to enter, and unfortunately it is not covered by the Firenze card. It is popular, but most people don't actually know about the basilica. We want to visit to see the beautiful and historical architecture. Google rates this place 4.5 stars.
