Piazza Santa Croce

YouTube Preview Image

In the East of the old town, Piazza Santa Croce is one the nicest and least touristy Piazze in Florence. There are artists and the shops are not aimed at locals in the main but sitting on the steps outside the church and having a drink is highly recommended!

Public drinking of alcohol is perfectly acceptable here and so a bottle of wine or beer from one of the local shops can be a great way to save money for doing something more exciting like the 500 Touring Club’s wine tasting tour!

    Amazingly, it was! You have to hold your breath to get a steady shot but otherwise it’s fab.
    I got mine from Firebox; they were the cheapest then, not sure about now. They deliver to Europe (and the US I think)
