Gorgeous old cathedral which, incidentally, is the final resting place of Dante Aligheri, Michelangelo, Machiavelli and Galileo. Huge statue of Dante in the Piazza outside.

We loved the interior and exterior parts of the museum and the helpful advice of the museum guards. The audio guide is a bit on a shallow side leaves you a little bit disappointed with very little facts shared, but still useful.

Lots of greats buried in one place. It's pretty fascinating! The tombs are really impressive and there is a special feeling about the place. I'd recommend a visit.

Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
