Fascinating to see the tombs of such famous people. Gives you a real connection to the history. There's something about being in the same room where all these famous people are buried. So elaborate, and so much history. We LOVED coming here.

If you can't get into Duomo then pop round to Santa Croce as it's worth a visit. Tombs of Dante, Michelangelo and Galileo are here and are quite impressive.

Amazing Basilica. I'm sure people say, once you've seen 1 Basilica, you've seen them all. No, each and every Basilica was so beautiful and incredible.

This basilica – more than Florence's Duomo – make me see a lot of similarities to the Duomo in Milano. The stained glass, the expansive space, the serenity (because of fewer tourists) and the tombs of Michelango, Dante Aligheri and Machiavelli are must-see. Highly recommend...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.

I noticed a few wheelchair ramps in the Basilica so I think the answer is 'yes'.
