Great place to use as a point of reference. Start your adventures from here. Excellent wifi available from the Apple Store 24 hours per day and several of the hire bicycles around the square too. Lovely merry-go-round and plenty of shops and eateries; a stone's...More

Of the many famous squares in Florence, I found this to be the most manageable. It has plenty of space so even with a lot of tourists it doesn't feel constrained. And perhaps not quite as many come here as some of the most famous...More

Another beautiful piazza - some touristy stuff, but an awesome statue of Danta as well. Visit the impressive Basilica.

This piazza takes its name from the Basilica located at one end. Palaces, restaurants and shops surround it. Home to Dante Memorial and in June each year, it is covered in sand for the annual Calcio Fiorentino games

Open space, great restaurants, beautiful buildings and fun people watching. There are other piazzas in Florence, this is the best of them all. Plus, the magnificent basilica on the east side adds to the rich historical theme. Gotta love Piazza Santa Croce!

This piazza is so grand, that it hosts a temporary stadium for Italy's only version of American football/MMA, the famed Calcio Istorico, in June. It's a beautiful open piazza the size of a football field, overlooked by the Facade of Santa Croce and guarded by...More

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.

Yes. There's a Taxi stand just in front of the square. But it's only a five to seven minute walk.
