These rulers were locked inside Palazzo Vecchio. Piazza Della Signoria in Florence is a great place to know about the history of Florence and its rulers.

History of Piazza Della Signoria

Piazza Della Signoria is located in the area where there was an important square located during the times of ancient Romans. It is surrounded by a theater in a semicircular shape, a church and Roman baths too. The Piazza Della Signoria has the L shape due to the array of historical events that commenced from the second half of the 13th century. Guelphs and Ghibellines were fighting during the time and Guelphs took the control. They demolished towers and houses of the rivals. The land was then called damned and it was forbidden to build anything. The ground was thrown with salt so that nothing grows in the land. This location got paved in 1385 making it the square one can find today. The square has been the political center and it has also witnessed the worst executions in the history of Florence.

    Bharat's 8 days trip to Florence

    Trip was nothing short of dream come true. Really had great fun and was able to manage everything on the trip because of the Itenary shared. One suggestion was please give help to solo traveller going abroad first time to keep cash in currency of the place they are travelling because its must requir
    ed. Another important thing would be to help people who are pure vegetarians to find indian restaurants which will really help them to have proper food because in italy its pure non vegetarian food. I would suggest to take food packets from india and also research the place of travel before going so that you already have a brief knowledge of the locations of travel. In locals in italy during night hours request to travel via taxi would be a suggestion by me to avoid any problems.

    Thank you @ Mr Rajat from hubholiday. Our trip to Italy was planned very nicely and with comfort as well. Hotels he selected were near to each and every station. Itenary was planned in a manner where we had time to rest at night but covered all iconic spots of the city. Mr Rajat was very helpful in
    timely informing about the corona issue, which was very important for me and my family to know about this outbreak of news. I would recommend from my personnel experience Mr Rajat from HubHoliday to plan tour and holidays.
