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.
Florence city centre is a ZTL zone which stands for “limited traffic zone” and therefore special rules apply to when you can enter this area. This particular apartment is in fact located within the ZTL zone so this means that if you are thinking of coming to Florence by car and wish to drive around and park, then you will need to pay special attention to the road signs, CCTV cameras and access cameras (they will show either a red /green light) in order to avoid receiving fines. Guests who need to travel within the ZTL zone by car to reach their apartment are advised to contact one of the private garages in the centre (the one nearest the apartment you are staying in) and obtain a temporary access permit. Upon arrival at the garage, guests must specify their need for access in the ZTL and the garage will then note the vehicle’s number plate and forward it to the appropriate police headquarters.
