Huge beautiful church with tranquil cloisters. The tombs of lots of famous Florentines are within - so well worth a visit - Dante, Michaelangelo and Galileo to name but a few
Florence is full of art and culture. Since city is small and all attractions are within the 2 to 3 km, radius, you can see all in two days and in fact if like any attraction more you can visit again as we have done for Santa Croce. it is full of paintings, glass works, statues of all great people...

There's so much to see at Santa Croce - art, tombs of famous Florentines (Machiavelli, Rossini, Michelangelo, Galileo, to name a few) - that one is advised to walk slowly and take one's time. Absolutely magnificent!
The outside is really understated, but when you get inside wow! it reduced my partner to tears when she went in. It is truly a beautiful place, calm and tranquil.
