This plaza is dominated by a wide open space with stacks of statues including the replica of the statue of David. The buildings are steeped in history & even the drizzle & cold added to the atmosphere.

Situated at beautiful Piazza della Signoria just near the stunning statues of Florence. Interior is Italian masterpiece, even though we were not allowed to enter some rooms that are usually available.

Even if you can not climb to the top / bell tower here, no problem as the views are same from here or from Duomo. but the palace is worth visiting and to understand the history of Florence.

The Palazzo Vechio overlooks the Piazza della Signoria where you will find a copy of Michelangelo's David statue. I was told the Palazzo Vecchio is the Town Hall of Florence. Inside is the famous "The Crossing of the Red Sea" , a fresco painting by the Italian artist Agnolo di Cosimo, known as Bronzino - BEAUTIFUL!

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
