I found this to be another nice piazza in Florence. We walked through at night and enjoyed meandering around it. The statue of the bronze boar IS A MUST! We easily spent 15 minutes studying the details of the sculpture. How artists create such details...More

This piazza is never dull, I have been numerous times and will keep going back. It has everything you need; great shopping, great food and great people to match. Sure you see a lot of leather goods which seem to be very very very similar...More

We visited Florence for the new year and were lucky enough to be sitting at Cafe Gilli when it started very lightly snowing. Oh wow - didn't last long but would love to go back and see this place covered in snow. You don't have...More

I stopped here one day largely for the people-watching. Got a table at one of the plentiful restaurants that spoke English a bit too well and had prices that were a bit too high. Overall, a gorgeous area that affords a lot of people-watching and...More

Restaurants and shops surround this piazza. There is also a huge, colorful carousel at one end. A few street performers and street vendors roam the piazza but they are not overbearing. This is a great place to just sit in the sun, take a break...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
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
