We visited in late November. The right transept remains closed, but we were able to view the Peruzzi Chapel. The 'Opera' has great exhibits on the flood of 1966 that should be missed

This is a fascinating church where many of the good and great of Florence are buried. It is amazing on the outside and the inside is even better - far more interesting than the Duomo.

Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
