“Beautiful piazza”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

Our hotel was located in this piazza and we loved it! It is a great place to sit, observe and relax! There are also some fantastic restaurants and places for gelato....our favourite was Il Grillo! Not the most beautiful place in florence, but you won't regret stopping by....

“Can Miss”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

Nice place to relax after you are tired. There is a big green area in front with some nice flowers which makes it a great photostop.But you won't regret if you miss it.

“Cute”
Reviewed 16 May 2014

It is really cute Piazza! There are a lot of people though, it tends to get overcrowded, especially at the market place :)

“Just another piazza but be aware”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

This place is nice and quiet but a block away the train station is located so it is the favorite place for Italians to pick pocket innocent tourists, they make bets to see how many tourists they can pick pocket, I lived there and I used to watch those youngsters stealing things from tourists that just arrive to Florence, it was their pass time and me watching them doing what they did, they are quick, they are experts and if you catch them they RUN FAST you wont be able to see them again so watch your valuables and DO NOT talk to strangers. Italy is still BEAUTIFUL and this neighborhood is not the exception.

“Not the best square in Florence”
Reviewed 6 May 2014

There is nothing much interesting in Piazza Santa Maria Novella: is another square.
The location is convenient, just behind the Central station but most of the building lack
of interest...main reason to go trough this Square, for me, is going to the Pharmacy of Santa Maria Novella.
