  • Large bustling square pretty much in the center of old Florence. So many nice little places to stop and visit, alas we were just passing through on a walking tour.  more »
  • Very nice square in the center of Florence. With many beautiful buildings. It's a bit like Vienna. It was very lively during our visit.  more »
  • Lovely area, just a pitty with con men walking about targeting tourists, spoils it
  • beautiful square in the center, close to the markets, food and drinks are pretty expensive here so if you go a little further behind the Duomo you will find great quality food for a better price :)
