What to Expect
Florence's churches and art museums amaze everyone, and today, you'll have the chance to visit the Church of Santa Croce and the house of Michelangelo, Casa Buonarroti, with a professional guide. Let your guide share with you the legends behind the man and the city in a fun and exciting day of sightseeing.

First, gaze at the majesty of the biggest Franciscan Church in the world. Built in 1294, you'll find here an incredible church filled with the funerary monuments of some of Italy's most important Renaissance thinkers. Michelangelo, Galileo, Rossini, Machiavelli and Alfieri were all laid to rest here, and your guide will point out their crypts as we visit the church.

Next, you'll head to the home of Michelangelo, where you can walk in the footsteps of greatness and admire several early works painted by the master. Your guide will explain to you the importance of these early works, including the "Madonna of the Stairs" and the "Battle of the Centaurs."

This is a day perfect for anyone after a deeper look at what life in Renaissance Florence might have been like, or simply for those interested in a unique story of one of the town's greatest residents.
