“one of the most spectacular squares in the world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Tuscan romanesque at its best. The white marbles are still absolutely fantastic. It's well kept and beautifully restored. Shame for all the ugly vending stalls around the square.

“This is a must see at least once in every life that can afford to come here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

It is one of the real wonders of the world. Words are not enough to describe this place or its effect on the thoughful, discerning tourist with a soul.

“Out of this world”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Our first impression was astounding it just hit you and you just watch and take it all in with awe. The lovely stalls on the sides made it enjoyable just looking around.

“A "Bucket List" Site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

This is someplace that anyone who considers himself a world traveler must visit. That said, except for the Leaning Tower, the Piazza is a little disappointing. The Duomo (cathedral) is huge, the baptistry is there (it has large, rather nice bronze doors) but the Tower is really the big deal.

What I like best about the Piazza (you may see "Campo") dei Miracoli is the *extremely* green grass that surrounds the white marble buildings. On a sunny day, that can be miraculous.

Sadly, it was gray and rainy for our visit today. You get what you get...
