Santa Croce

The Basilica of Santa Croce is one of the most recognized symbol of Florence in the world. The square is dominated by the beautiful facade of the Church designed by Arnolfo di Cambio as one of the leading examples of Gothic architecture in Italy. 


There are works of art of great value inside, including the Crucifix of Cimabue, the famous frescoes by Giotto and the graves of famous people such as Machiavelli, Michelangelo and Galileo


The large square in front of the church is a meeting point in the city thanks to the presence of numerous bars and restaurants in the area. Every year in the square takes place in a special camp set up for the occasion, the annual football tournament of the “Calcio Storico Fiorentino”. Nearby the square there is the big National Library in front of the Arno. 


The facilities in the area of Santa Croce offer a stay nearby to all places of interest for your stay in Florence.
