“Must see!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

We were just walking through the city and stumbled across this piazza, it was just as beautiful as the rest! Many tourists taking pictures of all the statues and many restaurants surrounding where you can sit and have a gelato to just appreciate your surroundings.

“Living history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

You feel like you are living history when you stand here. Unfortunately all the tour groups seem to meet here and it is not a pleasant place to be at during most of the day.

“One of the best Piazzas in Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

This Piazza like the others is surrounded by wonderful buildings, and is great for people watching, a taste of gelato and and shopping. Also for shopping try the area around the Pitti Palace.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

We were staying just over 100m from this place and visited it several times a day. It is very special, so much atmosphere, packed with tourists, surrounded by food and great sculptures including a copy of the 'David', which looks out over the Piazza. It was like an old friend that embraced us each time we visited it.
