A beautiful Square with flower shops and a beautiful Merry Go round. A short chariot ride from the Duomo will drop us in the square for 5 Euro's.

Our guide gave us a good explanation of the history of this Piazza. I loved it for all of the shops, bars, people watching and musicians. A great place to hang out when in Florence.

Nice place to hang out. Lots of restaurants and cafes, souvenir stands, live music, the carousel, and more. There are always lots of people, but not over crowded. Excitement and fun always.

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by

The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
