This pza. is a good place to park your car for sul'Arno walks; to the Pitti Palace and Santu Spiritu Church. Look in the open doors during business hours (also evenings) to see craftsmen working in their own shops and studios. There is usually a dance club at night but they have to quiet down by a certain hour. Inside the church are among the most gorgeous, lifelike murals you will ever see. Masterfully cleaned and restored in the 70's they caused a stir becuase no-one had realized how bright these works had been in 1500 (AD) The church is ancient and charming at the same time.
