My travels in Florence seem to bring me past this plaza often. There are ample opportunities for a coffee and relax on this plaza and it always has something happening. Enjoy it a little as you walk past it on you way somewhere else !!

Nice piazza with some interesting shops. There is also a huge marry go round. We also walked through the straw market which was interesting to see and worth a visit. Just be prepared in the summer months it is very hot.

Beautiful piazza, from 1800's. A must-see spot in Florence. Has musicians almost at all times, restaurants, cafes, etc. As part of a nice place for a stroll from Piazza Signoria to the Duomo.

This large piazza is a great place to drop by. It is, because of its size, very open. Lined by some reputed, historic cafes on two of its sides. On the piazza there is an old fashioned round-about that my 3 year old loved. Also...More

This piazza is a lively one - surrounded by wonderful restaurants and cafes, hotels (the Savoy is here) and the magnificent boutiques recognized all over the world. It's also just steps from the duomo. Had we realized that when booking our hotel (the Four Seasons)...More

We recently visited Florence and walked around and loved this square with all the shops and little restaurants. Lovely atmosphere and well worth going to see.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
