This elegant piazza facing the Arno is one of the off-the-beaten path jewels of Firenze. Two Renaissance palazzos, homes to two exclusive hotels, Westin Excelsior and St.Regis look majestic in their solemn beauty. And lovely Chiesa di Ognissanti is the place where the hidden treasure...More

A large uncluttered piazza, we happened across it walking along the river bank on our way to the Ponte Vecchio. Being so bare it gives an impressive view of The Ornissanti church and we were then drawn to the large status of Hercules fighting a...More

Nice place to check out the Hercules statue if you are in the area but then the only reason to be in the Piazza is the Church. Otherwise... there are more interesting places to stroll & this is a pass.

It’s a decent Piazza near the water. There is Church Chiesa S. Salvatore IN Ognissanti and a sculpture of a man fighting a lion… and guess who that man is? ITS HERCULES!!! :)

The Piazza Ogni Santi has only the façade of the Church of Ognisanti worth seeing. The façade of the church is Baroque and beautiful. In the plaza there is a modern sculpture without a name or the name of the artist who made it. This...More
