This March I will make my ninth trip to Florence and this square is my favorite place in Europe. The Open Air Statue gallery is magnificent and the Palazzo Vecchio with it replica of the David near the entrance is charming. One can sit and absorb the Renaissance. On an earlier trip I had dinner at one of the restaurants... More

If you look at Guiseppe Zocci's engraving of the you will understand what the designers intended. No matter which corner you enter the piazza from, the sculptures will be seen to compliment the space. The sculptures are all about twice full size. Entering from Via Calimaruzza you see a dark statue of Cosimo I (by Giambologna) against a light coloured... More

You have to go here of course but beware this is not THE DAVID. I was taken by a friend who thought it was until we went into the Accadamia. The piazza has multiple fabulous statues and scenes and it probably the best in the city for such sculpture, so allow some time and go into as many of the... More

360° view of the historical square make you feel like you are 500 years back in the past. Can't miss the loggia with all the statues. ask a guide to lead a tour for you, otherwise buy a booklet. If you don't, you can not appreciate the place in toto!

Beautiful piazza, one of my favourite places in Europe. It is usually rammed with people during tourist season, but this is not as bad as you would imagine because of the sheer size of the place. The statues are marvellous to behold and there are plenty of opportunities for pictures, food or to just sit and watch the world go... More

A beautiful piazza filled with many people and many sculptures, Piazza della Signoria is a great place to just have a seat and take it all in. It is here that you can find a copy of Michelangelo's 'David' at the entranceway to Palazzo Vecchio, or even take a seat directly below Perseus holding the severed head of Medusa (as... More

This is a beautiful piazza with several features. There is an area with many statues to view, a large fountain, different places to relax and have a drink. The piazza itself is quite large.
