The Cathedral Squares goes Pedestrian
All traffic is now forbidden on the Cathedral square and next - by streets, with important changes to bus routes : the closest stops become Piazza San Marco, Piazza Stazione ( railway train station ), Piazza Antinori and the corner of via Oriuolo / via del Proconsolo.
Three electrical minibuses continue to connect the main touristic poles of the city centre.
It's absolutely beautiful walk in the Duomo area and enjoy the quieteness of the square. It's still busy, but instead of loudy cars, there are visitors, tourists, Florentines. Fantastic! The city centre is always been pedestrian friendly, but with this new big and important squadre, close for cars, it's everything changed.
We would need more areas pedestrian, but we cannot forget the resident centre population and give them the possibility to move themself easily in their city.
