“nice sculptures”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2013

My family and I stumbled upon Piazza della Repubblica on our way from the Duomo to the Ponte Vecchio. It lies just a stone's throw from the Uffizi Gallery. There is a fountain, a couple of street performers and several interesting sculptures in this plaza. My kids loved the sculptures and, in particular, the one of Perseus holding Medusa's severed head. We spent about 30 minutes here just perusing the sculptures and enjoying the ambience.

Its a nice open space with lots to look at and plenty of places to sit down and rest sore feet with a vice cold drink.

“Posh and Grand”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

This is a posh and grand square. Most notably the big tall archway which you often find yourself entering through to get into the square. In the centre of the square is a merry go round, which whilst we were there was the setting for a bride and groom to come after their wedding. There are a few posh restaurants in the square, one of which sprays out fine water from the ceiling when the weather is hot. So dining in that restaurant is a welcome relief from the heat. The square itself is one of the lesser busy squares. You can usually walk through it without people walking into you, walking in front of you and generally stopping you in your path. It is however visibly a really nice posh and grand square but once you have seen it once there is not that much to do there, so you will probably find yourself passing through to get to the Duomo, other shopping areas, or the touristy areas.

“Do be a tourist, it's ok.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2013

We enjoyed the sights and energy of the area.
Felt like "Hemingway" sitting with a glass of wine (ok, so he had something more) at the 2 large restaurants on it's edge.
The bathrooms are perfect (downstairs)

Handsome Piazza but compared to the rest of the old city, probably the ugliest spot. The only place (we found) to buy football tickets.
