Look for the pizza places here, they're the best around. You'll often have to wait a little and share a table, but once that pizza arrives: you'll be thankful you have all of your senses to enjoy it.

Actually we were not aware of the reputation of this square on the south side of the river before visiting and were actually here to visit the Church. But on exiting the church the laid back nature of this square was easy to feel. Perhaps...More

Like most piazzas in Florence this one is surrounded by restaurants and shops, very nice surroundings with a nice Church (Santo Spirito) in the piazza. This famous Church has very famous art pieces inside, the piazza is fairly small and it is al little hidden,...More

There is a famous church in the piazza, but its real beauty is in the people that visit it. There are several great restaurants where you can sit outside and people watch. Tons of locals come to walk their dogs, kids come to play, and...More

Santo Spirito is a great place to go for aperitivo or dinner. Several good restaurants surround the square.

A nice place to dine solo, unpretentious and also frequented by locals. There are quite a few options of bars and trattorias and the locals are trendy and fashionable, so a good "people watching" spot.

Great restaurants and not nearly as crowded as many other piazzas. Since it's a few minute walk away from the Duomo area it's less crowded. Food prices are also less expensive. It's located near the Pizzi Palace and the Boboli Gardens

We stayed near here, so this was our village. Good restaurants, daily fruit and veg market. Busy but not knock-you-over busy. Consider staying, visiting in the area across the Arno.

This was such a respite from crowds every where. It was a very peaceful plaza with a beautiful church. I truly enjoyed this piazza. There are stores and restaurants close by but they don't feel intrusive as the do in some of the other piazzas.

Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great
company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo
Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour.
Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the
staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and
they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria

I'm staying to Florence for three nights in May. I love arty, local, a little bohemian atmosphere and going to rent an airbnb and hang out like a local. IThinking of SAnto Spirito or St Niccolo areas? Any thoughts if this is too far from the main areas. I plan to take a train to Lucca one day.

Santa Spirito is not far from the main areas. At Santa Spirito you can find a good mix of locals and tourists. There are great restaurants over there. On certain days there is also a market. We loved the atmosphere there.
