Church
“The Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore is an imposing gothic church built on the site where the ancient Cathedral of Florence stood, the Church of Santa Reparata, whose remains are visible in the crypt. Visiting the Cathedral is free! The entrance to the Cathedral is free and for this reason, there are long queues to enter. Don’t worry, usually, the line moves quite fast. The number of visitors inside the Cathedral is limited mainly because of the noise that comes to be created in this place of religious worship; recently (from July 16, 2012) to improve the situation, the directors of the Duomo decided to oblige groups of more than 4 people to rent radios or audio guides (cost from 2 up to 2.50 euros per person) in order to reduce the noise of visitors and increase the number of persons allowed in every single moment. ”

“The Santa Croce district is located in the south-east of the historic centre of Florence. The main monuments of this area is certainly the church of Santa Croce with marble façade situated in Piazza Santa square. Inside the basilica there are tombs of famous artists such as Machiavelli, Alfieri, Michelangelo and the tomb of Galileo Galilei. The square has a rectangular shape and every year in June hosts the historic Florentine football, perhaps the most important event in Florence, where football players from the 4 neighborhoods (represented by the colors, red, green, blue and white) compete in medieval football matches. In front of the church, there is the marble Monument of Dante Alighieri made by Enrico Pazzi in 1865. On the opposite side there is a fountain.
