I love this Piazza, when it's not too crowded, especially during the evening, the Loggia with all the statues is a nice place to just hang out and soak in the lovely Italian Piazza that fills with life musicians. Just be prepared to fight off the selfie stick vendors.

This bookshop is in the Piazza, has good selection of English books. Also the food in the cafe is reasonable, and very cheap.

Beautiful square in the heart of Florence in front of Palazzo Vecchio and very close to the Uffizi, surrounded by impressive statues. An agreeable place to have an espresso and enjoy the magnificent scenery.

Every day we were in Florence we would walk to the Piazza and have a gelato and marvel at the statues that surround the area. It is so easy to find and is a meeting place for many people.

Avoid crowds to see it for the first time, and then go back any time during your stay since it's Firenze's heart. Always full of life and beautiful with each different lights as the day goes by. Such beautiful statues and palace/townhall too!

Beautiful statues and a picture postcard perfect stop... busy with the usual tourists by day- visit by night for a unique coffee stop and walk around. Great museum /Palazzo Vecchio- and not far from the river or Bargello....my favourite place in Firenze

This is quite a large area with so much to see. There are many beautiful statues, the main one being Neptune & a line of many different statues under the arches. Beautiful large bell tower etc, Uffizi Museum, you will need several hours to walk around & take it all in.

This has got to be one of my favourite places in Florence with all the statues, the Palazzo Vecchio, the Uffizi gallery steps away.
