Take a stroll and just soak in the history and the architecture. At the front of the cathedral, you can rent horse-drawn carriages. There are numerous restaurants, shops, and artists/craftsmen on the fringes of the plaza itself.

Plenty of restaurants with very reasonable prices. Most surprising as the Piazza adjoins the Duomo, a major place of interest with free admission. Souvenir stands with a good range of souvenirs. Close to a number of places of interest including the Duomo itself. It's a...More

No matter how many churches you've seen, you have to visit this piazza. There will be crowds, but it doesn't matter. The highly decorated and famous Duomo must be seen to be believed. Imagine, one poor artist spent his entire 50-year career just working on...More

What an amazing, inspiring place to be in the Piazza where the Renaissance master's changed the world and lifted humanity from 1,000 years of the dark ages. There are treasures abound in Florence, but the Duomo is central to the work. You can't miss standing...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

You can visit it any time of the day. The restaurants in the piazza are open till late and you can always walk down the nearby roads and find lots of stalls for road side shopping.
