The square has been the site of the violent but much followed Calcio Fiorentino ( a type of soccer/boxe/rugby) since the 15th century, and still now every year it is held here when the piazza is completely covered with sand for the occasion.
Two visits several years apart - first visit purchase leather coat, lighter weight than I could find in the US, beautiful color - coat is now more than ten years old and still in beautiful condition. Second visit Apr 17, 2017 - purchased leather messenger...More

Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night. Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the Central National Library. As a hub for young people, the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated by songs and dances.
