Piazza della Repubblica is one of the hubs of Florentine life, and the antique carousel in the square is a fine way for young travellers to take a break from sight-seeing. Just around the corner is a cheese lover’s dream stop for lunch, Obikà Mozzarella Bar. Also nearby is Bartolucci, the wooden toy workshop and store where you can find coveted Pinocchio souvenirs made for generations by the Bartolucci family.Recommended for:

The Piazza della Repubblica is the very heart and soul of Florence. The architecture is simply stunning, although some of the ramshackle stores take a little away from it.Recommended for:

Piazza della Repubblica was the first site of the city's forum, as well as the old ghetto, though neither remains today. It was also once a meeting place for many influential artists. It is dominated by a massive arch that spans the back wall of the square.Recommended for:

The site of the old Roman Forum, where Florence began--a great central meeting point and fab for people watching. If I'm in the mood for fancy, I'll have my caffe at the Belle Epoque Gilli, or if I want to go more artsy, there's the Giubbe Rosse. The Merry Go Round there adds just the right playful touch.
