Nice plaza, lots of jewelry and leather stores. Unfortunately, that’s were most Tour operators and guides take you to make it your designated meeting point if your going to do Florence on your own. Beware, that they all have establishments which the recommend obviously because...More

Piazza Santa Croce is a very nice place with lots of small restaurants on each side, where you can have something to eat or only a drink. Or you can only sit on an bench looking at all the tourists. We were there many times...More

Very large Piazza in front of church of Santa Croce . Very quiet when we visited with nothing at all going on - much nicer ones elsewhere in Florence

Probably because the church was closed due to an accident, this elegant place rather dull. The frontage of the church is very beautiful.

based on this simple piazza, we weren't that impressed. However, there are many streets surrounding this piazza that have shops and gelatto. They are more spread out and you have to walk down more alleys to find these. Perhaps it was the time of year...More

Our tour of Florence ended up here and we had lunch in a nearby restaurant. There seemed to be some kind of fire and saety displays taking place all day in the square so it was hard to get a full appreciation of the Piazza....More

We stayed in a small apartment just off the Piazza and loved our location! The taxi stand was right there which made it easy to get to wherever you needed to go. People would play music in the Piazza or sit and draw. Wonderful!

This piazza has a lovely, relaxed feel to it and there was always sun if you wanted it, or shade if you didn't! In October, the weather was getting chilly in the afternoons before dusk.

Quieter since it is a bit outside the city center. Good place for a bottle of wine and just sitting. During the day there are few carts of souvenirs.

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.
