Our pilgrimage group visited Basilica di Santa Croce which is impressive for its works of art and tombs. Although we attended mass in the corner chapel, our visit seemed like a tour of a museum than a religious site. The tour was very interesting but...More

This is a fascinating church where many of the good and great of Florence are buried. It is amazing on the outside and the inside is even better - far more interesting than the Duomo.

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.
