Piazza della Repubblica in Florence is the place where the roman veterans created a military camp in 59 b.C.. Today is one of the hearts of the city where you can enjoy the historical cafeterias of the city (Gilli, Le Giubbe Rosse Paskowski…),  relaxing a little bit to enjoy this wonderful but overwhelming experience.  During the whole  day  you will see the square full of people and of street artists: painters, singers or musician…so when you visit Florence just have a stop there. 

And if you have kids there is one more reason to stop: the vintage carousel. Horses and charriots to jump on, like a time machine imaging we are going back in time maybe in 1865 when Florence was declared Italy’s capital city replacing Turin. Parents have always got the temptation to do the same thing but it is not possible 😉 And after a season of hard work our horses need to relax! (below picture)
