“Really Crowded”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

It's really crowded in the the Bridge and quite difficult to find a place to take picture. But the outlook of the bridge is really good and I loved it so much.

“Crowed, crowed, crowed”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Nothing to enjoy when you are surrounding by hundred of tourists On rainy days it smells s...at evey corner (no Wonder with such a concentration of people). Even if you pre-book the entry of Museum you have to queue a lot (50mn for Uffici) and it is badly organized. Prices are not in relation with what Florence is supposed to offer. Very disappointing.

“Quiet and better value”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Much better than the city centre of Florence, as it is off the beaten path and en-route to Piazzale Michelangelo.

“Take your camera and your purse”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Great walking great architecture and one shop after another full of design and fashion and all things beautiful. This is not one place but the center of the city has been set aside for walking...no cars. So you can stroll without fear of being over run by a stray Vespa Fiat or Mercedes.

“Proper shoes a must!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

This tiny area is the must for all. Mostly pedestrianised the streets are paved with irregular flat stones that could be a problem for high heels pr thin shoe soles. But forget the pain - just explore and be amazed!

If over 65 avoid the epensive Florence card - entry to almost all attractions os free on presentation of passport!
