If you have the time, add this church to your tour list. Like the other big churches in Florence it has plenty of art pieces and religious appeal that make it fascinating. Gallileo, Machiavelli, Rossini, and Michelangelo's tombs are in this church. There is also...More

Be sure to see this but go behind the church to the Leather school, in the former monastery to enter. You can buy a ticket and enter sans lines and crowd. You will enter where most tours, self led or guided, end so just walk...More

This is probably the best church to visit in Florence. This is partly because it contains numerous tombs of iconic Italians such as MichaelAngelo and Galileo. The frescos and other parts of this beautiful church are well worth the time. It’s also quieter and less...More

A fantastic place, full of history, brilliant architecture. One of the highlights of our trip. The graves of great people took our breathes. A must see.

Very ornate church/monastery, with a statue of Dante Aleghieri looking down at you on the outside. A very good couple of hours' stroll around. Cloisters, illustrations galore, very famous people buried inside.

This is one of the most beautiful and the historic location of graves of some of the most famous names of 500 years ago. We lined up for its opening thinking we may miss the opportunity to get in otherwise.

Beautiful church and well worth a visit. We went roughly when it opened (10 I think) and lined up for tickets. Gorgeous.

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.
