Piazza di Santa Croce

Recommended
One of Florence's oldest and most dignified squares, it retains many of its historic buildings. At no1 (opposite the church) is the 15C Palazzo Serristori. At nos21 and 22, flanked to its left by an old building that shares its overhanging frontage, is Palazzo dell'Antella, which dates from the early 17C and is decorated with frescoes.
