So much confusion that you are missing all the beautiful things that are in Via dei Calzaiouli. There are so many people and cheap shops that the beauty of Florence is completely lost! In the little adjacent streets there are lots of little places were...More

Located on this very crowded street that runs from Piazza del Duomo to Piazza della Signoria are hotels, restaurants, bars and money exchanges. This street is a shopper’s paradise.

If you're looking for something you will find it on Via Devi Calzaiuoli. Shops of all kinds. Pateries. Chocolates. Gelato. Packed with people. Convenient to everything.

The Via dei Calzaiuoli is a lovely street in Florence. In between the main central square (Piazza della Signoria) and the Piazza del Duomo, this is a nice street to stop, tale a break and people watch in

Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
