  • Cute square, but nothing more. Surely the area offers around best places. The Church of s. Marco although after being passed by the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi looks like a church like many in Italy

  • Walking the streets of Venice is a wonderful experience. And the most pleasant surprise is, after walking a lot by narrow streets, the vast Piazza San Marco. The architectural ensemble, with marble façades and many sculptures, impress and charm who views the city of Venice.

  • 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.
