When you walk into this Piazza you feel as you are in the heart of Florence and you are! This is where Michangelo's David stood for over 300 years till he was moved to save him from the elements. You can just feel the weight of history all around you. It's full of people and life, ringed by statuary and... More

This is a great Piazza that truly gives the impression you're in the center of everything important. With the Palazzo Vecchio before you and a plethora of amazing sculpted statues scattered about, no matter where you turn there's something to delight you. The plantings are lovely and the sun seems to fill the square perfectly. You'll also find the Gucci... More

One quick tip, especially for the warm summer months: Free water is available from the city. A great fountain to refill your water bottles is in this piazza. On the side of Palazzo Vecchio, specifically behind the Fountain of Neptune, is the water fountain. (See pic) This is the same city water. Completely safe. Why pay 1,00 euro for a... More

This is a beautiful Piazza and probably the most interesting I found in Florence. Instead of being surrounded by substandard restaurants and shops, the square has a number of free to view artistic and architectural pieces. There is also the palace and tower (tickets necessary) which add to a great trip. It might be worth noting that the square also... More

Packed witn tourists, street vendors and mere replicas of original statues, it is of course still a must while in Florence.

Lavish and gorgeous. It is well described with English versions of all the signage. The tower is a lot less work than the campanile or cupola but provides a glorious view from the top!

Awful, do not waste your money here. Food was cold, portions small and service terrible. The waiter reminded us four times to tip and counted it in front of us. I have never been made to feel so uncomfortable

And it doesn't disappoint. Go to catch the early evening light on the Palazzo Vecchio. Don't miss the plaque showing the site of the burning of Girolamo Savanarola.
