Visiting Florence? For accommodation check out St Mark's English Church!


Visitors to Florence seeking quality accommodation should look no further than St Mark's English Church in that city. St Mark's (pictured above) can provide hospitality for short or longer term visits in 4 spacious and well appointed apartments in the very the heart Florence, just a couple of hundred metres from the Ponte Vecchio. The apartments are in the upper floors of the medieval palazzo which houses the Church, and which is considered to have been at one time the home of the Machiavelli family!


For more information about the accommodation, visit this website.
 

St Mark's English Church has a proud Anglo-Catholic tradition and has since its inception been a centre for the both the Pre-Raphaelite and Art and Crafts Movements. It presently has an active worshipping life and is the centre for many cultural and musical events and an impressive outreach programme, thanks to the leadership of the the parish priest, the Revd Lawrence MacLean, who has led the Church into new vitality over the past nine years. Fr Lawrence recently been appointed to a parish in Exeter diocese and will be leaving St Mark's in July. He is pictured below with his wife Jacqueline.
