Basilica di San Lorenzo
Children (4-8yrs), Pre-teen (9-12yrs), Teen
Visit the church of San Lorenza, especially after visiting other older churches, and have your children notice how this church has an important difference in design from earlier churches: While earlier churches (like San Miniato, the Cathedral, Santa Croce, Santa Maria Novella) have flat walls at the sides, San Lorenzo has many openings in the walls, open rooms that usually have a small altar and a work of art above the altar. These rooms are called side chapels.
