Lovely square with lots of eating places, next to the Uffizzi Gallery and Palacca Vecchio. Very easy to get to from all directions.

“Wonderful Piazza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

This is one of my favorite places in Florence, just to relax and people-watch. You are surrounded by gorgeous architecture and sculptures. Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi anchor this piazza.

“Don't Miss "Casual Music"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

In the evenings, go down to the corner of the piazza next to the Uffizi Gallery. There is almost always someone playing for tips. And they are almost always pretty darn good. Buy a CD if you really like it, or just leave a small tip. Also get a prosecco at one of the places on the square and that's a fine evening!
