We were in this majestic place, at the end of March the cold weather, wind and more rain. The market was full of tourists who ignore all the bad weather, only to see the buildings and floral exhibition.

The square was fantastic to look at, but part of it is under construction. There are some restaurants here, but you'll save some money by leaving the square by a block or so.

Come early in the day to avoid the crowds, and I mean crowds. The architecture of the old guild buildings is well worth a look and the flower market a sight to behold

I've seen many impressive squares across Europe and after a while you tend to become a little blasé towards them.

It is truly stunning when illuminated at night, the architecture is very... More
