Escape to the Tuscan countryside on this full-day tour from Florence. Don’t worry about the logistics of organizing a countryside tour: just sit back and enjoy round-trip transit in an air-conditioned coach or minivan to the sights. Visit the medieval town of San Gimignano, a UNESCO World Heritage Site; enjoy a lunchtime vineyard visit and wine tasting in Chianti; journey to Siena; and see the historic walled town of Monteriggioni.

A beautiful building overall but bit pricy to go in as basically only tombs to see which can be done in 10min

Basilica is another basilica.. Walk round the back to the grave yard. It's fascinating and massive!! Mausoleum after mausoleum. Some old some new but 100's of them. This place had a strange atmosphere. A must visit.

Stunning church in a great square, with loads of monumental architecture and superb statues. Worth visiting to pay respects to some great Italians

A chance to pay homage to the tombs and intricate memorials to some very famous people including Machiavelli, Galileo (and probably his daughter) and Michelangelo (though he would probably be horrified at the sight of his monument). And don't miss the cloisters and the amazing Pazzi chapel. During the Covid crisis, visitor numbers are limited so expect queues, temperature checks and the enforced wearing of masks but the staff on hand are very friendly and helpful.

It was our privilege to pay homage to Michelangelo on our visit to Santa Croce, which we do every time we visit Firenze. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and found that the management of visitor numbers and Covid-19 arrangements were very good.
