Florence: Around Piazza Santa Croce

Piazza Santa Croce is pretty much like any in Florence -- a nice bit of open space ringed with souvenir and leather shops and thronged with tourists. Its most unique feature (aside from the one time a year it's covered with dirt and violent Renaissance soccer is played on it) is the Palazzo Antellisi on the south side. This well-preserved, 16th-century patrician house is owned by a contessa who rents out a bunch of peachy apartments.
