Santa Croce is lower key than the Duomo but it would be a mistake to miss it. See the tombs of Michelangelo, Fermi, Machiavelli, Galilei, Rossini ...

The archecture of the Basilica is outstanding. But the important things to see are the masoleums of the famous people buried there. Michelangelo, etc.

Santa Croce
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.
