San Frediano

San Frediano is located in the Oltrarno neighborhood, in the part of Florence that lies on the left bank of the river Arno. The area is characterized by the great gate of medieval origin, which still retains its original wooden door.


The name of the district derives from the church of San Frediano, dating from the tenth century, which dominates Piazza di Cestello. In the area lies the Church of Santa Maria del Carmine, especially known for the Cappella Brancacci. Inside you can admire the famous frescoes by Masaccio and Masolino, some of the most important examples of  Renaissance art. 


Staying in an hotel in San Frediano you can live the authentic spirit of the city, in one of the most vibrant and popular areas of Florence.
