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...More

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.

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.

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...More

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.

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.

I quite enjoyed coming across this Piazza. Lots of happy buzz and no traffic. Not too busy with tourists and 3 nice statues to visit.

The piazza itself is a bit plain with only an equestrian statue in the middle, but it packs a punch in terms of the views and history. On one side is the Annunziata basilica. On the other is the Ospedale degli Innocenti, designed by Brunelleschi...More

It's one of those places you just find when you walk in Florence. There's the statue of the horsemen in a small square. I wouldn't say make this a part of your trip but keep your eyes open.

San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a
stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence,
surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking
students provides the tranquil surroundings for the
elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read
the daily newspaper. Home to several universities,
including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one
of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A
