Special promotion on guided tours

To celebrate Santa Croce's reopening to visitors, we have devised special weekend guided tours

Starting 12 May, visitors will have the chance to explore Santa Croce's history and beauty by joining three great value tours.

The tours link Santa Croce to the Florence of Dante's day, offering three different but all equally atmospheric visitor experiences. You can choose between:

  • Giotto, painter in Santa Croce and entrepreneur in Florence;
  • The Power of Images: the message of Saint Francis;
  • Wealth and Poverty, bankers and saints.

The tours, which are offered in Italian only, take place at the weekend, starting 3.00 pm Friday to Sunday, for groups of no more than 20 visitors.

Tickets are available on a weekly basis starting 10 May. Reservations, which are mandatory, may be made at Santa Croce's on-line box office. Please note that the booking fee has been waived for the reopening phase.
