This unique Florentine piazza is the center of the artisan quarter. Dominated by the last masterpiece of Brunelleschi, the Basilica of Santo Spirito, the square is home to little local markets and antique fairs.

Great place to sit back and people watch. Generally, very few tourists hang around here, so you get a real sense of the city here particularly at night.

This is the "Bohemian" part of town where artists, students, and locals congregate to sing, dance, hang out.

Located just two blocks off Palazzo Pitti, this is a great place to take a break in one of the restaurants (Borgo Antico) and visit the Spirito Santo church. On Sundays, a local fair is held there; amongst junk, one can find interesting artifacts.

Santa Spirito is not far from the main areas. At Santa Spirito you can find a good mix of locals and tourists. There are great restaurants over there. On certain days there is also a market. We loved the atmosphere there.
