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.

Small electric buses (ATAF lines) C1, C2, C3,

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 numb(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.
