The Piazza San Marco is a plaza dominated by the San Marco Church, which has a beautiful façade. In the middle of the plaza there is a small park with benches where people sit. The plaza is busy because there is a bus stop there. There is nothing else of importance to see in this plaza.

Piazza San Marco is a lovely typical Florentine square. 3 sides have lovely beautiful buildings, including la Chiesa di San Marco that behind the un assuming facade is a treasure trove of art. Perfect starting point for walk towards the other main attractions of the City Center.

Pizza San Marco is an ordinary piazza and not much interesting monuments though it is a great starting point to tour around the Historic Florence.

this piazza is not so great as of Venice. Very casual in look and not so attracted but ofcourse, you can sit and relax here if tired after walking alot in florence.Though it is listed in guided attraction list, if you have opted to explore by your own,probably better to miss it.

Not feeling real well this particular morning I opted out of my Insight Tour's walk to the Duomo and to the leather factory. After resting for a couple of hours I was feeling much better and decided to go on a little walk by myself. I soon came across this piazza that was abuzz with activity and sights and sounds and really stimulated the senses. I am a mad, keen photographer and there were lots of things to photograph and for me to look at, but sadly not enough time as I wanted to get to the Duomo and to see other things as well. The only negative was the public phone boxes did not seem to work, or instructions needed to be in English for non - Italian speakers.
