We had the Florentine steak and it was wonderful. Great people watching and better value than other parts of Florence.

The usual church and an open square with a lot of restaurants having their seating in the courtyard. Some decent places to have a drink. Some activities for locals.

All they had was a few little restaurants but the area looked old and not well kept, if you needed to use the restroom make sure you have 1€ available

A wonderful immersive experience. Visit the church for the Michelangelo crucifix and La Casalinga to eat like a local.

A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria

Santa Spirito is not far from the main areas. At Santa Spirito you can find a good mix of locals and tourists. There are great restaurants over there. On certain days there is also a market. We loved the atmosphere there.
