Don’t get me wrong. The church on face value is amazing and very beautiful inside. More so than the Duomo. Great frescoes and stunning chapels. The tombs are what set this apart and the reason we visited. Very cool to see Galileo and Michelangelo’s among...More

Wow what a fabulous place to visit. A hundred per cent more worthwhile than inside the duomo. We luckily found an English speaking volunteer guide who was just so lovely, would not take any tip at the end. However, an unguided visit would be good...More

I must confess that I wanted to see this church because of the film "A Room with a View." I was not disappointed! The interior is truly astounding —especially in comparison to the Duomo of Florence—, and the number of tombs of historical figures is...More

I really can't describe how cool this place was. The fact that painstaking restoration was going on right in front of our eyes only added to the coolness.

This church does not get as much attention as the big duomo- but its a favorite to many. Don't miss it. Worth the wait here.

This basilica was my favourite of all the churches we visited in Florence and we must have seen 12 of them. The altar was just so moving and beautiful.

Santa Croce is a beautiful basilica, more grand inside than the actual Duomo. It has special significance as the resting place of Michelangelo and Galileo (to name just a few), with beautiful monuments, and is guarded by a statue of Dante. We were also lucky...More

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.
