This church has the tombs of Galileo, Michelangelo, Ghiberti, Machiavelli, Fermi, Marconi, Da Vinci, as well as frescos, sculptures, and paintings by Donatello, Vasari, Gaddi and Giotto. You can do this on your own, but a tour will enhance your experience greatly.
You do not have to be religious to appreciate the splendour here. Michelanglo's tomb was enough to get my attention and it doesn't end there as detailed sculpture after sculpture adorn the halls and walkways of this fabulous site. Easily accessible for young and old...More
This place was amazing! So much beautiful art. But what I was so amazed with was the tombs. They have tombs in the floors and the tombs of such people as Machiavelli, Galileo and Michaelangelo! If you like cemetaries and such, don't miss!

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.
