I didn't go inside the attraction. I stayed outdoors and clicked some pictures. Its a beautiful monument nevertheless.

Lovely by night, wandering through and listening to music played on a mandolin by the light of the stars and amidst priceless art (ok, and copies). Romantic and awe inspiring - though this is diminished by the pervasive presence of men hawking selfie sticks and flashing lights and helicopter toys.

The Palazzo Vecchio on the Piazza della Signoria in Florence is both a museum and working public offices. You can visit the spaces where much of the history of this city occurred and view the artwork displaying therein. You can also climb the clock tower for views of the city.

The palace consists of so many art pieces, especially on the ceiling. Every room has its own theme, and this theme is shown by the artworks. I recommend you to visit this palace if you are going to stay in Florence, but you have to be ready because there are so many stairs that makes this trip a little tiring.... More

Bring your smart phone and pay $2 for the walking tour download app at the ticket counter. It explains in detail the rooms, art and history of Florence. This was a really good two hours. And it is right between the Duomo and Pitti Palace.

A really lovely building with some amazing pieces of art, as well as some great views over the city. Really was surprised how much I enjoyed this tour. Bit of a tip: spend the four euros on the archaeological site but make sure you down load the relevant app before hand so it all makes sense.

Don't think the copy of David is any near as good as the real thing. Believe me it is no where near! That said, the statuary in the loggia is superb. Well worth seeing, and free, and no queues

This is the plaza that holds the fountain statue of Neptune and the marble reproduction of Michelangelo's "David." For me, the best part was off to the side of the plaza where the museum has a free entry to see a small collection of statues. Entry to this area is roped off and monitored for capacity, so you may have... More

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.
