The Piazza della Signoria was our first stop. The Piazza has been the center of politics since time immemorial. It used to be a large theatre was later on converted into various buildings.
According to history, the land was owned by the powerful Ghibelline family but when the Guelphs took over, they destroyed all properties.
Anyway, now it's a busy place where you can find lots of bars, ice cream shops and restaurants.
