Santa Croce

Mike in front of Facade  (69k)

This neo-gothic face was added in 1863, but the church dates back to the late 13th century.

Patti with Vespas   (64k)

Seemed like a good place to take a picture.

Dante Alighieri   (60k)

Statue from 1895.

Government Building   (65k)

This cool old building would make a great hotel, no? Our friend Ginger says this is a government building though - what a waste.

Main Doorway  (71k)

Behind this door, the tombs of Michelangelo, Machiavelli, Galileo, and Leonardo Bruni.

Main Entrance   (66k)

If we were not so tired, we would have gone on to see the Cappella Baroncelli, the campanile, the Chapel de'Pazzi and more.
