Top ways to experience Piazza della Repubblica
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.

This is a big square. It’s near the big church. It has a very cool arch. And I went through three or four times and each time it was crowded and full of life.

This is the location of the origin Roman era forum during ancient times. It then served as a market square during the Middle Ages. Today, the rectangular shaped public square is the result of 19th-century urban planning. You see a large palace archway entry and portico lined arcade on the west side of the square. There are cafes with alfresco outdoor seating on the north and south side along with a carrousel in middle and historic Column of Abundance on the east side facing Via Calimala.

During past visits to Florence, we have enjoyed chocolate fairs and other festive events at Piazza del Repubblica. This time the square was much quieter, just a place to pass through from one location to another while sightseeing around the city centre.

Located close to the main sights and in central Florence, there are shops, cafes, a carousel, and other things here. It's an easy spot to move onto and between different sights. Cafes and eateries off the square are better than those in the square though.

The piazza itself is quite nice but the carousel is the big highlight if you have kids. It’s great for taking a break from walking and museums and kids love it.

This is yet another Piazza in the central core of Florence that is bustling with people and activities. It is surrounded by impressive architecture, and filled with shops, vendors, street entertainers and even a carousel for the kids. Good place to take a break, have a drink or treat, and watch the people.

This area is in the center of Florence and is good for both shopping and eating. There is a large department store in the area Rinascente, and lots of cafes and smaller stores. The square also has a merry-go-round for the kids.

Love this square, plenty of shops and cafes. A lovely working carousel in the middle, this was being used by both children and adults. A great place to stop for coffee.
