What people are saying:

The Basilica of Santa Croce is a Franciscan Church, and some say that St. Francis, himself, was involved in the construction process. Construction of this Church began in the late 13th century and the Church was finally consecrated by the Pope in the early 15th century. I was overwhelmed by the splendor and beauty of this Church. How many Churches have you visited that had the frescoes of the great Giotto, or the reliefs of Donatello?! While in Firenze, this Church should be on everyone's bucket list to visit.
