"City's liveliest and most entertaining square" Piazza Della Repubblica Tip by Tijavi

Piazza Della Repubblica, Florence: 30 reviews and 63 photos

Arguably, the café-lined Piazza della Repubblica is the city's liveliest and most entertaining square. This seemed to be the case even during the medieval and Roman times when it was the heart of city. Today, the square beats to the rhythm of children's carousel, freelance street performers, residents out for fresh air and promenading tourists. It's such a lively place and a great escape from the overwhelming amount of art to be seen and experienced in Florence's many museums. The square is best experienced after sundown when it's aglow in bright lights and the air filled with music from street performers, street vendors' sales pitches, and children's delightful shrieks from their carousel ride.
