In the heart of Florence, near the Ponte Vecchio, stands the church of Santo Stefano al Ponte, one of the oldest churches of Florence. The lower part of the facade dates back to 1233 and retains Romanesque elements, while the upper part was rebuilt during the Gothic renewal. The interior was renovated during the Baroque period. It is full of stunning works of art and decoration, including the beautiful staircase by Buontalenti, with a marble balustrade, built in 1574. Numerous paintings also remain from the Renaissance period.
