How to book tickets for visiting the Basilica of Santa Croce, Florence
Once upon a time a church as important, as grand, as treasure-filled and as visited as Santa Croce in Florence survived on the bequests and donations of wealthy and notable local families and merchants. No longer. The maintenance of sixteen frescoed chapels (works by Giotto and his pupils), the resting places of Michelangelo, Galileo, Rossini and Machiavelli - this has forced on the authorities a requirement to charge entrance fees. You may read more about the church on our information page.
Tickets cover entrance to the basilica (church) itself, plus the Museo dell'Opera di Santa Croce (museum of works), the Cappella Pazzi and the cloisters. Opening hours are from 09.30 until 17.30 (with last entrance at 17.00) from Monday to Saturday and from 14.00 to 17.00 on Sundays and certain holidays. Tickets are valid for one visit only.
