          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.
