Florence is a city-musuem and Piazza della Signoria is mo exception. There is the statues of Neptune, David (reproduction) and Palazzo Vecchio and Loggia with a lot of interesting statues inclusing of Perseus.

This Piazza is centrally located in the heart of Florence and is heavily adorned with numerous statues including a replica of the David. Great shops and restaurants all around. Palazzo Vechio and Uffizzi Museum at the far end of this Piazza. Not to mention my favorite shirt store, Ate Seta!!!

I feel that this piazza is the heart of Florence. With the painted buildings, famous sculptures and buzzing crowd, I was struck by the beauty of this square. To say "don't miss this" seems silly--why would go to Florence and not come here?

The square has some very nice statues and Uffizi gallery. Florence has a very special atmosphere, and the one of the examples is the square.

The Carosel was a delight as was the parade that we stumbled across accidentally which included costumed participants in period attire drums and weapons. It appeared like the changing of the guard at the church.

Piazza della Signoria is a special place set in the Historic Centre of Florence. Lined with beautifully painted buildings, this is place you will want to pass several times during your visit and a place you will often think about once you have returned home and are thinking of Florence. First and foremost, this is where you find the worldly... More

Always a great location to take a wander and worth visiting both during the day and late night to enjoy the atmosphere. The statues are wonderfully lit and it's great to see all humanity thronging around enjoying the spectacle. Wander and enjoy

Managed to get thru this piazza many times while in Florence, and loved it the same each time. Love all the statuary, great place for people watching. Constantly barraged by all the peddlers selling their junk, the city really should do something about that.

The square is always busy. Vendors, performers, sculptures or festivals, there is always something going on here. When you walk into the middle of the square and just stop and look, the history in almost any direction is like a physical presence. Take your time to see all of the sculptures from the water fountain of Neptune to teh David... More
