Visited as part of a cruise. The Piazza was our central meeting place. There are plenty of small restaurants that offer good value for money eating options. There are also many small gift shops to pick up little bits and pieces.

This is a common grown for a picture, usually there is a show some days, nothing out of the extraordinary, but a classic !

We visited this piazza on 12 July and expected it to be heaving with people at 4:30pm. Quite the opposite, it was very peaceful and quiet, unlike the area around the Duomo. The church closes for tourists at 5:30pm and that may have been a...More

When I visited there was scaffolding up in the pizza to form an arena for a concert or suchlike and this detracted from the impression that the buildings could create. Plenty of cafes, shops and souvenir stalls

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.
