We went to Santa Croce on advice of our tour guide, the previous day. The basilica is beautiful on the outside and on the inside it has the most incredible art work. When you think you’ve seen it all, there is another room! The surprise was the visit to the Scuola del Cuoio, where you can purchase traditional Florentine leather goods. You can also watch the craftsmen and women making items such as handbags, coasters with gold stamping, among others, all this inside the basilica.
