“Nice alternative if you are tired of crowds”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

I have visited this place in the evening because of Italian who have recommended me one of the restaurants over there. I had a feeling that there are more locals than tourists over there so it could be good advantage. This is nice alternative if you would like to rest of crowds. I have also eaten very good foods over there and not so expensive as in other parts of the town.

“Lovely piazza”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

This is a lovely, less crowded Piazza with some great restaurants. If you go in the morning, there is a farmers market. Don't miss the Santo Spirito church on the piazza which houses a wooden crucifix carved by Michelagelo when he was 18.

“We must of been there too early??”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

It was suggested that we visit this piazza to people watch. It was not very crowded in the late afternoon or early evening. We must have been there at the wrong time???

“Fantastic Piazza”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

This piazza really made our trip.

There is a number of great places to eat here as well as a fantastic gelati place open till late.

We spent our evenings driking with the locals on the steps of the cathedral of Santo Spirito, and then after getting lovely and tipsy grabbing a bite to eat and some house wine from one of the fantatic local resturants, they are all very popular with the locals which is always a great sign.

We didnt find anywhere better to eat in Italy! All of the places on Piazza Santo Spirito were perfect.
