What You'll Do
  • Discover the treasures of Santa Croce and its role during the Middle Ages
  • Admire the work of important Italian artists including Michelangelo, Donatello, and Brunelleschi
  • See the magnificent tomb of Michelangelo
Enjoy a small group tour of the Basilica of Santa Croce, known as the Temple of the Glories of Italy. As a mausoleum for important personalities, it houses the tombs of the painter and sculptor Michelangelo, the author Dante, and the scientist Galileo.
What to Expect
Visit Santa Croce, also known as the Temple of the Glories of Italy, on this guided tour.

Santa Croce was at the heart of the Franciscan order, which was known for the mass preaching in the square during the Middle Ages to combat heresy that was very popular with serfs and peasants.

The Basilica has served as a mausoleum for Italy’s most important artists, politicians, and philosophers. It is the final resting place of Michelangelo, Dante, and Galileo.

Learn from the detailed explanations of your official English-speaking guide. Enjoy the beauty of the art of Donatello and his crucifix, one of the jewels of the Renaissance, as well the the art of Brunelleschi and the perfect architectural harmony of his Chapel of Fools.

The Church bears the marks of history, including those left by the tragic flood of 1966 that damaged several paintings and destroyed the monumental cemetery, which was subsequently restored and is part of this tour.
