    Santa Croce
    Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
    Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
    Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
    artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
    Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
    the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
    continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
    by songs and dances.
