A magnificent basilica with some outstanding art. Do also go to the cenacolo and do not miss the Pazzi Chapel. Leave enough time to absorb the atmosphere both in the church itself and the Pazzi Chapel.

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.
