This was our first time eating wild boar and it was amazing at one of the restaurants on the Piazza. The upscale stores are impressive combined with a very nice ambience! Loved it.

This has the replica statue of David and others. For arts buffs this is a place to start. I wouldn't recommend any restaurant here as they are overpriced

Palazzo Vecchio, Uffizi galleries, statues (even the fake one of David), or the courtyard of the Palazzo Vecchio (made as a wedding gift by one of the Medici-guys for his wife),it is amazing.

If there is a favourite plaza to choose from Italy, it might just be this. I was there on a saturday evening and the plaza was basking in beautiful soft rock music by the local talents. You could actually sit next to the outdoor sculptures and drown in the music and beauty of the place. The restaurants at the plaza... More

This is one of those places that you have to sit and observe when you visit a new place. So many things to see in one single square! The outdoor sculptures, 2 great museum side by side, the fountain, the shops and restaurants.Be aware that you cannot lean on the statues (there are some supervisors around that will call your...

This is the square where the original David used to stand before it was placed in the Accademia. There is a copy in it's former place now. So all the tourists who didn't want to wait in line for the Accademia are here - along with all the others waiting inline for the Uffizi which is just next door. So... More

The Mayor of Firenze's offices are also located here but this is not the only reason why this square is an absolute must when in Florence. It is special if you like people-watching. There are always lots of people here - there's always something (official and non), happening. Even the papparazzi mill around here everyday in the hope of taking... More

No visit to Firenze is completed until you visit Piazza della Signoria. Surrounded by some of the greatest sculptures and the Palazzo Vecchio. This used to be a place where the mayor events in Firenze were held. Besides, Ponte Vecchio is just a short walk away.
