Santa Croce, also known as the Temple of the glories of Italy, was the heart of the Franciscan order, known for its mass preaching in the square during the Middle Ages to combat heresy, that was very popular with the serfs and peasants.
We offer a two-hour guided tour of the entire ensemble of Santa Croce which has served as a mausoleum for Italy’s most important artists, politicians and philosophers (it includes the tombs of Michelangelo, the sculptor of the famous David, Dante the father of the Italian Language and Galileo Galilei).

You can delight in the detailed explanations of the official English speaking guide. Enjoy the natural beauty of the art of Donatello and his crucifix, one of the jewels of the Renaissance, as well the art of Brunelleschi and the perfect architectural harmony of his Chapel of Fools (Pazzi family).

Santa Croce contains many hidden treasures, the church bears the marks of history such as those left by the tragic flood of 1966 (it is possible to see a sign showing the level reached by the water) that damaged several paintings and destroyed the monumental cemetery which was subsequently restored and is included in this tour.

A tour filled with romance, mysticism and art at its very finest.
