A nice piazza, great for people watching, food, museums and architecture. Right in the centre between duomo and ponte vecchio, cannot be missed

that now serves as the government building is really an impressive structure from the exterior. It's adorned with flags and artifacts and represents when Florence was it's own sovereign nation.

A beautiful place to visit, not to be missed. Also a welcome respite to the busyness outside and just a few steps from the Uffizi.

We stumbled upon the square during our walk back to our accommodation. Replica of Michaelangelo's David is here along with other famous statues so it's beautiful to see. But once again be aware of the cafe's around the palazzio. They are a tourist trap. €24...More

The frescoes, artworks, sculptures and main hall, well worth the visit. You will have your camera out right from the entrance through to the main hall.

Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time
will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past
times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can

dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can

It is a normal street over a bridge, but it is very crowded. Maneuvering will take time and will get you a bit cranky. I haven't seen accommodations for persons with reduced mobility.

Hi, I am trying to find the website to book this tour. We are planning to visit Aug 10-12, 2017 and will be 2 adults and 3 kids. I looked up the official website but it doesn't show any booking times. Is it too early to book for Aug? Thanks

I totally agree with trex30338-you get more bang for your money buying the museum pass and can go to them at your leisure.
