This square is slightly quieter than some, restaurants and pavement eating spaces. This basilica is wonderful. It's is also where Michaelangelo and Dante have their tombs. Also the leather school where you can watch students make items

We stayed near the Piazza which never seemed crowded day or night compared to other parts of Florence. A nice ambiance during early evening

I really appreciate European city centers. This old world Piazza is just beautiful. Watching the lights come on and glow over the multi-century old buildings took me back to the times Dante and Michelangelo roamed the area. This Piazza at night is Magical indeed.

Can you think of a better place to shop at a Natale market? The square is alive with fragrant smells, the stalls are teaming with scarves and hats and other goodies ... and there is Christmas in the damp, foggy air! Wonderful!

A large piazza dominated by the Sante Croc cathedral that houses many of the tombs of Florence's most famous residents. We had a lovely meal in one of the restaurants at a reasonable cost.

It is not as busy as some of the piazzas but there is enough going on to sit for a while and people watch. There are restaurants and cafes as well as benches and of course the church steps.

Be prepared to wait for all main attractions, can be quite long especially difficult for people with small children, Also beware of changing English Pounds into Euro. Charges very high.

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.

Yes. There's a Taxi stand just in front of the square. But it's only a five to seven minute walk.
