A showcase of Renaissance art.

Walk around the square or simply savour an espresso in one of the many cafés. Soak up the atmosphere of centuries of art.

Lots of statues and restaurants around. Quite a touristy area, but it was really great at night with all the lights.

There is a little alcove full of sculptures, as well as a few dotted around the square. My favourite was one in green, which shows a man holding the head of medusa. I forget who the man was in mythology but it was pretty incredible. It doesn't take long to get around it, so don't plan a day around it... More

This is easily one of my favourite piazzas to be in. It's flanked by the Palazzo Vecchio and Fountain of Neptune on the East and the Loggia dei Lanzi (Loggia della Signoria) to the South. The Loggia has very famous sculptures out on public display so you can spend the day appreciating the art without going out of your way.... More

Located near the Uffizi gallery this piazza is full of nice statues and great for people watching. The Piazza is very large and can get jam packed. There are no seats in the piazza to just sit and rest. For better photos come early in the am before the gallery opens to take pictures without numerous people in the square.... More

The piazza and statues are much larger than I imagined they would be! It's very impressive to see, however the people trying to sell selfie sticks/light toys are quite annoying.

It's a must visit on any of our trips to Florence. It's just a shame that Cafe Rivoire was closed in January! Their cioccolato caldo is the best!

You're bound to run into this area if you're heading to Uffizi and just simply wandering around. Definitely worth your time to see all the statues and you can see where David originally stood before it was moved.

There is a Lot to see here - the statues are amazing, well preserved and detailed. The museums are interesting and not expensive

In front of Palazzo Vecchio you are surrounded by ancient buldings and pieces of art, close by Uffizi museum.

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.
