Piazza Santo Spirito has become a zone where many young people head to enjoy the nightlife of Florence. The piazza is full of popular bars, cafes and pizzerias. You might think that this piazza is full of teenagers who just sit around a smoke their cigerettes on the steps of the Santo Spirito Church but alas these steps are very famous during the summer months. As Florence is an oven during the summer days, the summer nights can be just as humid. The sun warms the stones of the steps which makes your bum feel rather warm itself. A meeting place for the young and old alike, Piazza Santo Spirito is on the Oltrarno where ancient Florence is still alive in its streets. There are also some great places to stay at in this piazza as well.
