This was an amazing church, the history here was unbelievable. To see the crypt of Michelangelo and Galileo was something I will never forget. So many names in Italian history entombed here. Small entrance fee.
The church at Santa Croce is one of the most beautiful and most historic in Italy, in our opinion. The tombs of Dante, Michelangelo and Galileo are here, and there is a leather school attached at the back where young interns are learning the trade...More
We visited here as an alternative to the duomo which had huge queues. There was no queue and once inside there was plenty of room to see, including tombs of many famous Italians. Information about major flood of 1966 and lovely cloisters to walk around.
This is a very impressive church with the tombs/monuments of Michelangelo, Machiavelli, Galileo, and others. Dante has a monument, but is buried in Ravenna. There are also many great frescoes in the front of the church. It was covered by our Firenze card and we...More
Entrance fee 8 euros but this keeps the crowds away. Not just the Basilica but also adjoining chapels, cloisters, you need at least an hour. Magnificent paintings, murals, statuary, altar rec. NB a degree of modesty in dress required but longer shorts and covered shoulders...More
In the day this square has it's fair share of tourists but it is much less than the surrounding sites, particularly the duomo. There are also nice restaurants in nearby streets and locals here in the afternoon walking their dogs or enjoying a drink.
Worth a visit . A veritable who's who of the dead are here. Michelangelo 's tomb he did not design what is displayed here but a patron paid for it . Next to his tomb a large painting was being restored which was fascinating.

We arrived early morning to a growing queue at the ticket office. We received a map on entry which was great because it is quite a large complex. Beautiful artworks and garden as well as a large crypt.
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.
