“Very busy square, lots to look at.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Loads of people looking at well maintained statues and fountains. A beautiful square filled with loads of history. Very spectacular when lit up at night.

“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.
