The Neighborhood

Piazza Santa Croce is one of the largest and most famous squares of central Florence. The Basilica of Santa Croce, the largest Franciscan church in the world, overlooks the piazza. The basilica's most notable features are its sixteen chapels, many of them decorated with frescoes by Giotto and his pupils, and its tombs and cenotaphs. It is the burial place of some illustrious Italians, such as Michelangelo Buonarroti, Niccolò Machiavelli, Enrico Fermi, Galileo Galilei, Ugo Foscolo, Guglielmo Marconi, Luigi Cherubini, Leon Battista Alberti, Vittorio Alfieri, Gioacchino Rossini, Lorenzo Ghiberti, Lorenzo Bartolini, Pier Antonio Micheli, Bartolomeo Cristofori, and Giovanni Gentile. For this reason it also known as the Temple of the Italian Glories (Tempio dell'Itale Glorie). In front of the Basilica there is famous marble statue made by Enrico Pazzi decidated to Dante Alighieri, and formerly places in the middle of the piazza.

Getting around

By bus:

Small electric buses (ATAF lines) C1, C2, C3,
bus 23 and night bus services Nottetempo operate in the city centre and will get you close to the Church.

Tickets can be purchased at many newsstands and tobacco sellers (usually “Tabacchi” in Italy display a sign with a big white “T” on a dark blue or black background) around the city.

In addition you can get them when you board the bus, asking the bus driver for a “biglietto”: in this case you will need exact change.

If you have a mobile phone you can also buy a ticket by sending a text message with the word “Ataf” to the number (phone number hidden) (the cost is €1,20 + Phone Company prices) ; within a few seconds you will receive the answer with a code to show the bus inspector if requested.

South Florence (Firenze Sud) Motorway exit is the nearest to Santa Croce. See the itinerary on (website hidden) Maps.

  • This was a great apartment and by far the most room we've had in all the cities we've visited! It was like a home away from home!

    Everything was clean and tidy, there was lots of hot water in the shower, and the bed was comfy.

    It is also within walking distance if pretty much all the major sites in Florence and right around the corner is a street that gets pretty lively in the evening. It was the only place we could find something to eat on Christmas Day.

    Niccolo (email hidden). He provided us with a map and great information about the city. I would definitely stay here again.
