Tickets

The ticket allows entry to the Basilica, the Pazzi Chapel, the Museum of the Opera, the Refectory, three cloisters, and other spaces that are constituent parts of the tour.

The preservation, restoration and enhancement of the Monumental Complex of Santa Croce is made possible thanks to contributions by the local community, the historical Florentine families, associations and corporations, and by donations and bequests of private individuals. Today, that generosity remains essential, but donations alone do not suffice to cover the costs necessary for a complex of this magnitude and importance.

Visitors not only keep Santa Croce alive, but are also considered its contemporary patrons.
