Located a short trip from the old town centre and best accessed via the C1 bus is this small piazza. It is difficult to access because it was set in the middle of a round about. Here there was meant to be a replica Arc...More

A great place to park your car especially overnight when visiting friends as there are restrictions on car parking in Florence. Place was safe but had to get up to feed the meter at 8am.

There are better arch’s around Europe and ones that can be seen easier. Piazza della Liberta has lots of trees around it which is great for nature etc but terrible when you want to photograph it. One of the best places to photograph it from...More

Amazing place but surrounded by a large round about which is the only downfall. Close to our hotel so walk past it every day

Piazza della Liberta is more of a roundabout, rather than a public square. It really functions more as easing traffic flow than providing some peace and quiet for people to relax. You can't really relax in peace and quiet in this little green spot in...More

Not much of a park, but the two arches here do photograph well. It is completely encircled by roads with screaming honking cars and motorcycles 24/7. Don't expect to find peace here. There is a parking area here, which is almost impossible to get into....More

The large central fountain adds to the ambiance of park benches in the sun. It was fun to watch the ducks frolic while we rested a bit and relaxed after a nearby meal. The surrounding streets are very busy and traffic noise is distracting

San Marco
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a
stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence,
surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking
students provides the tranquil surroundings for the
elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read
the daily newspaper. Home to several universities,
including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one
of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A
