The name of the square and the quarter comes from the main church it hosts, the Basilica of Santa Croce, well known for the numerous graves or funeral monuments of important Italian historical characters placed within: you can visit the graves or monuments of Galileo Galilei, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Macchiavelli, Rossellini, Ugo Foscolo and many more.
The square on which the church overlooks is rectangular-shaped, perfect for hosting one of the most important events in Florence every year: the Calcio Storico Fiorentino. Here, the 4 neighborhoods of Florence challenge each other to win a Palio, an entire beef of Chianina (an Italian breed of cattle of central Italy from which the Bistecca alla Fiorentina has to be made of) and the honor of the win, of course!
All throughout the year, the square hosts several other fairs and festivals, from the Christmas market in December to the Chocolate fair in February.
During the day, the area is full of life – there are many leather shops around the square and nearby streets, with the Sant’Ambrogio market acting as a main draw for residents and tourists alike as it offers fresh local produce, meats, cheeses and more every morning. The streets around the market offer various places to eat a quick and budget-friendly lunch, with many pizzerias and restaurants on the nearby Via de’ Macci and Borgo La Croce.
Once evening falls, the area around the Santa Croce square and most of the neighborhood come alive as the restaurants, cafes and clubs fill up with people enjoying an evening out. There are many restaurants in the area, offering both traditional Tuscan cuisine as well as more modern re visitations as well as ethnic options. At the corner of Via Verdi and Via Ghibellina you’ll find Theater Verdi which hosts a rich calendar of plays, operas, ballets and concerts from October through May.
From here you can walk easily and within 10 minutes to all the major landmarks of Florence. Car is not needed in the centre.

Andrea was a wonderful host and the house was beautiful and always clean. great locations, and the neighborhood is very quiet and safe.September 2019
Great and beautifully designed apartment! Strongly recommended for families, it is your ultimate place to look for! Amazing location too. Would definitely come back again.August 2019
I found this place to be very clean, comfortable, and perfectly sized for our family of four . The bathrooms and showers were excellent. You could tell that Andrea made sure that the apartment is very clean. Furthermore, they clearly explained the area, gave somany useful tips of where to eat, and also arranged a taxi for me from the apartment to the airport after I checked out. For the price you really get a better value tha a 5 stars suite, I honestly think this is a bargain. I am looking forward to staying here again one day.August 2019
