A nice piazza with lots of interesting shops and restaurants. There are no cars allowed, so it is very pleasant to just wander and enjoy the atmosphere.

This square was designed by the architect Nottolini in 1830. He demolished some of the buildings that were in the centre to create the square. Great place these days to grab a drink or a meal in One of the many restaurants encircling the square.
