Although it does have limitations as to its layout it is still a beautiful place to visit. Unfortunately it has to compete with the plaza majors in Salamanca and Madrid and it does pale in comparison, Lots ot se around it.

Shaped like square. Has cafes, shops and restaurants. It's where you can access the tourist trolley that takes you around the city.

Every time I am in the city Ourence it is in the evening. Plaza Mayor is a great place to get coffee and see the sights.

With the usual indoor and outdoor cafes, people watching, interesting architecture. Visitors will cross it several times going to see the cathedral, eat, drink, etc...

Nice place to watch the world go by, as in many old Spanish towns. Enjoyable restaurants, and ice cream shops, whilst you wait for the next tourist train to depart.
