  • Piazza San Marco is a nice little square with some greenery, a few seats to have a rest, if you are so inclined, and a lovely statue of General Manfredo Fanti. The Basilica di San Marco is just across...  more »
  • Hello on the place San Martino it is a small friendly bar or can eating good panino with a Moretti the boss is not too d effort to tempt you but we see that it is a man who has seen past thousands of more or less polite tourists do close to the duomo and the casa di Dante.

  • Not particularly exceptional, like the others, but it's a pretty square to do during a tour of this part of town

  • Good place to start your exploration around Florence as it is it too crowded.
  • Gorgeous, scenic. However a bit crowded.
  • Kind of dirty but it's a nice place for feeding pigeons
  • Heart of the city. If you don't spend time there, you havent been to Florence and you won't "get" the city at all.
  • Full of cars, taxis and buses. All make the Piazza uncomfortable

Where to stay in Florence

Variety is not a problem when deciding where to stay in Florence. The compact town center is packed with hotels, hostels, and small inns. The drawback of this upmarket central area is that even family-run B&Bs often cost as much as luxury hotels. For more affordable lodgings, explore the area outside the tourist-driven city center. Staying in one of the city's residential neighborhoods allows you to immerse yourself in the daily life of local Florentines. B&Bs and hotels outside the center offer private parking and spacious rooms, all within walking distance of the main tourist sites.
