This is one of those places that you have to sit and observe when you visit a new place. So many things to see in one single square! The outdoor sculptures, 2 great museum side by side, the fountain, the shops and restaurants.Be aware that you cannot lean on the statues (there are some supervisors around that will call your...

This is the square where the original David used to stand before it was placed in the Accademia. There is a copy in it's former place now. So all the tourists who didn't want to wait in line for the Accademia are here - along with all the others waiting inline for the Uffizi which is just next door. So... More

The Mayor of Firenze's offices are also located here but this is not the only reason why this square is an absolute must when in Florence. It is special if you like people-watching. There are always lots of people here - there's always something (official and non), happening. Even the papparazzi mill around here everyday in the hope of taking... More

No visit to Firenze is completed until you visit Piazza della Signoria. Surrounded by some of the greatest sculptures and the Palazzo Vecchio. This used to be a place where the mayor events in Firenze were held. Besides, Ponte Vecchio is just a short walk away.

The ambience, the statutes, it is truly a most divine magical area but it is crowded but what do you expect. You must go here and "feel" where the wonder Michelangelo would have wandered and walked and be inspired. Love it

Outstanding and historic. Marvelous central square in Florence with beautiful buildings and interesting statues. One issue - many, many tourists during the height of tourist season. Because of the location, the restaurants in the Piazza dell Signoria are a little pricey. You can find similar or better food at a better price at other restaurants in Florence. Still, a must...

So much just off this Square as well as all the sculptures and the Neptune statue and water feature. Quite a buzz. 2 mins to the Arno and view of Ponte Vecchio. Access to Palazze Vecchi and Uffreze right adjacent.

This square has a vibrant atmosphere, situated near the Uffizi, the Palazzo Vecchio. There are is a collection of wonderful statues that are free to admire in the square including the replica Statue of David and Perseus with the head of Medusa. A great place to relax.
