An interesting street and square

We found a few interesting shops to look through, and the piazza was interesting (especially after we poked our noses inside the Regis).

Nice place to check out the Hercules statue if you are in the area but then the only reason to be in the Piazza is the Church. Otherwise... there are more interesting places to stroll & this is a pass.

It’s a decent Piazza near the water. There is Church Chiesa S. Salvatore IN Ognissanti and a sculpture of a man fighting a lion… and guess who that man is? ITS HERCULES!!! :)

The Piazza Ogni Santi has only the façade of the Church of Ognisanti worth seeing. The façade of the church is Baroque and beautiful. In the plaza there is a modern sculpture without a name or the name of the artist who made it. This modern sculpture does not have much to say.

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighbourhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
