Near to Termini Station, this square offers you the opportunity to see the Fountain of the Naiads, formerly known as the Piazza dell'Esendra. When I visited the fountain was a bit dirty with rubbish scattered about it. It's a nice place to sit and grab...More

Piazza della Republica is one of the main squares in Florence so there is a chance you'll run into it even if you're not looking for it. This is also far better place to have a drink than Piazza della Signoria where most turists go,...More

During our stay in wonderful Florence, we passed Piazza della Repubblica many times. You recognize this great square because of its remarkable Column of Abundance, the impressive triumphal arch, called the "Arcone" and off course the children's carousel.

Nice relaxing stop on the way to the duomo. If with kids there is also a carousel with horses and sedans they could enjoy (very nice and passé style). The benches close to the carousel are also one of the few shadowy free spots you...More

In daylight the square is not so impressive despite the beauty of the buildings surrounding it. During the night all the restaurants are open and Piazza della Repubblica is literally full of light, but the brightest point of the place is a vintage carousel. The...More

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
