Local Square Surrounded By Historic Buildings
Feb 2020 • Solo
This is a vibrant square located just far off the tourist track to give it a feeling of authenticity and local flavor. The equestrian statue of Ferdinando I at its center is impressive as are the buildings that surround the square such as the Archaeological Museum which was built for a Medici family member in 1620, the imposing Basilica of the Most Holy Annunciation and the Ospedale degli Innocenti which dates back to 1419.

Not much to see

Nothing special to see here apart from a few buildings - move on to some more interesting piazzas, there are plenty better than this!

SYMMETRICAL RENAISSANCE SQUARE
Apr 2019
This piazza located in front of the eponymous church is lined on three sides by arched porticos. It is home to the equestrian statue of Ferdinand I and the twin fountains by Tacca. Along with these works of art, there are also Palazzo Grifoni and the old foundling hospital.

First foundling hospital
Feb 2019 • Friends
A fascinating place to stop and see the foundling window, which allowed mothers to give up newborns to the orphanage anonymously. I did not see a wheelchair path up to the window, but I could get a pretty good view from the piazza.

early Renaissance Square
Oct 2018 • Couples
Magical at night with the lighting. The orphanage is interesting. You will see the little window where people used to drop off lost or abandon children where they stayed until parents came to claim them or they went to foster care. The Church/ convent is beautiful and another building has been converted to a hotel.. Architecture is stunning. This is arguably the oldest unspoiled Renaissance square in Italy, so quiet and peaceful after dark. Walk toward the Duomo and pass a darn good Chinese restaurant too.....

Perhaps the most beautiful piazza
Oct 2018 • Couples
So many piazzas in Florence. So much history. But when you stand in this piazza and look at the 5 main buildings around it your breath is taken away by the beauty. Just wonderful. Do visit it.

Interesting!
Oct 2017 • Solo
The Basilica della Santissima Annunziata - Chiesa di Santa Maria della Scala is in this square. There are others interesting buildings around. The Fontana Del Tacca (Tacca fountain) is located at this square. One strange thing is the fact that there aren't trees there.

Out of the way square worth a look
Jun 2018 • Couples
Reasonable size with little to see (statue and 2 fountains aside) but peaceful and important from an architectural perspective with the Annunziata church on one side and the Orphanage on another. Colonnade represents some of the Renaissance’s earliest architecture. Visit the square and look at the terracotta roundels on the orphanage facade.

Nothing special
Apr 2018 • Couples
This piazza appeared to be favoured by locals. Here there were two small monster fountains which were worth a photo. Not worth going out of your way for but a nice place if you are passing through.

Nothing much to see!! Beware of Pigeons!!!
May 2017 • Family
The plaza is right behind the Academia gallery. Nothing much to see other than the fountain statue in the middle. Hotels all around and not maintained properly. Beware of the pigeons discharges on your head all around the plaza.
