Right by our hotel we felt drawn to view this hotel. The facade is fabulous marble but behind you see it’s a brick building and certainly not just a church. I loved it. The church itself has the tombs of Michelangelo and Galileo and a...More

When visiting Florence, don’t miss visiting Santa Croce. The church itself is very nice but there is a museum on site as well. Amazing. We loved the history.

Well worth a visit. The Basilica is beautiful and the grounds and other buildings are equally as lovely.

Not the most impressive from the outside, but inside. The most important thing are the tombs. Dante Alighieri, Galileo, Nicolo Machiavelli, Michalangelo... If You are in Florence...It must be on Your list!

Eight euros was very good price for the amazing buildings you get to see here. Church was seriously flooded in 1966 and restoration work amazing!

This is a beautiful church with a lot of history! A must in Florence. Takes about 2 hours and don’t miss the leather school inside the church!

One of our last stops during our week in Florence. I almost did not do it. It was truly an amazing place. I think you have to see the restored "Last Supper"-even if not a religious person. This painting was almost destroyed in the catastrophic...More

As this was started during the Gothic period and completed (mostly) during the Renaissance, Santa Croce has several different types of architecture. There are a few things under preservation (April, 2018 - altar), however there are many other moments (Galileo and Michelangelo's tombs for instance)...More

Santa Croce
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.
