“Lively Piazza Sta Croce”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Named as such because the Sta Croce church is the focal point of this square. This is where most tours meet & start. It's a lovely place with lots of shops around mostly selling leather goods, for which Florence is famous for, souvenirs & some restaurants & cafes. You can also just sit in one of the benches there & watch the people milling around. It's as if time stands still here amidst history & everything...

“Lively Piazza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Good vibe in the evenings, well behaved younger crowd, busy with jazz, nice! Vivoli icecream parlour is close by but we would say it is not the best.

“Main meeting point for tours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Good range of shops and cafes set around an attractive square. Visit Misuri for some lovely leather bags, my wife was over the moon with her handmade 'Grace Kelly' bag, they even emboss your initilas in it, 300 euors for cash is appartntly great value, she tells me!

The people, the dining, the shopping, the history - wonderful! Didn't have nearly enough time here as was on an organized tour. I will return.

“Amazing Dante's statue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Piazza Santa Croce is one of the main squares of the centre of Florence and is located by the Basilica of Santa Croce that overlooks the square. You can find over there incredible statue of Dante Alighieri. I coudn't stop admiring that.
