This piazza is very nice and you can see that a lot of local people live here. There a fair number of restaurants with alfresco dining that it makes a nice place to eat dinner.

It's gorgeous, but you don't go here for painting or altarpieces. This was designed by Brunelleschi and the geometric perfection and harmony of the architecture is worth a long look. A hop from the Brancacci Chapel.

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.
