Basilica di
Santa Croce

Piazza di Santa Croce
Distance: 13 km / 30 minutes
The Santa Croce is the resting place of Michelangelo, Machiavelli, and Galileo. They lie beneath the painted frescoes by Giotto that line the walls and the Cappella de' Pazzi of this ancient church. Although this site was hit by the floods of 1966, the building still remains the largest Franciscan church in the world.
