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.

A small market was in progress during our visit but we made our way through to enjoy the statue of Grand Duke Ferdinand on his horse .

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 to kick off his Renaissance architecture revolution. We have uploaded the view on a third side, looking down the Via dei Servi straight at the Duomo, also by Brunelleschi so neatly tying up his two masterpieces.

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.
