Uffizi Tower & Santa Croce

The Uffizi holds masterpieces by Botticelli, da Vinci, Rembrandt, and Caravaggio.  These amazing buildings were so ornate, words cannot describe.

Piazza Santa Croce was completed in 1442.  The Franciscans used the piazza as a headquarters around the 1200's.  This Gothic church is extremely important now because it holds the tombs of Machiavelli, Michelango, and Galileo.
