Visitor services

You can gain a deeper understanding of Santa Croce and its treasures with our official app, with our audio-guide in three languages or by booking a guided tour with a member of our staff who will take you around the complex to discover not only its many masterpieces but also a number of interesting areas rarely open to the general public.

If you want to enrich your experience of the complex while visiting it under your own steam, you can add the audio-guide option when buying your ticket. The audio-guides are available in Italian, English, French, Spanish and German and has a total duration of approximately two hours. They are sanitised before use, and can be hired either on line or at the ticket office.

In Tuscany with Dante

To mark the 700th anniversary of Dante Alighieri's death, this new app developed in 2021 by the Opera di Santa Croce with a generous contribution from the Regione Toscana introduces you to Italy's greatest poet through the words of his Divine Comedy, with Dante himself guiding you to some of the places where he lived and worked, allowing you to discover medieval Florence and the timeless beauty of the Tuscan countryside with its villages and castles.

In the app you can discover the routes that wind through the city of Florence, following the plaques or monuments dedicated to Dante dotted around town, or make your way out of the city walls to discover the Casentino, Mugello and Lunigiana areas, three places deeply linked to the political and artistic story of Dante. Villages, castles, chapels and evocative landscapes where the verses that Dante dedicated to these territories and to their inhabitants who determined their history, still echoes through their hillsides. 

"In Tuscany with Dante" is free of charge. You can download it directly onto your smartphone or tablet from Apple Store and Google Play.

Santa Croce in Extended Reality

A new way to visit Santa Croce and get to know the place with "other eyes" with the project curated by Opera di Santa Croce and TIM, aimed at all visitors and in particular the youngest.

Thanks to modern multimedia devices, now available in an initial experimental phase, it will be possible to access new content in an engaging and dynamic way. The devices, on which an augmented reality application is installed, allow access to extended reality content, supported by latest generation 5G millimeter wave technology.
