The best moment of the day to be in this square is in the early morning, when it's empty and just the merchants are walking down to open their shops. The Savonarola memorial in front of the Nettuno will let you think on how many revolutioner have made this city the heart of culture and science for years.

Great square - to people watch, to admire the David statue, to enjoy the beautiful buildings. Have coffee at the corner cafe - can't remember what it's called now. Or at the Gucci Cafe - reasonable price and comfy place.

Very atmospheric central square. Stop for photos and admire the statues. Rivoire is well worth a visit for drinks or cakes and coffee. Much nicer than St Mark's square in Venice - and much cheaper!!!!

Pretty much a beehive of activity but how unusual to find this Piazza barely inhabited - early in the AM or late at night. One of the things that i especially enjoy about places like this is sitting and imagining what it was like in its real hay day. During the Renaissance era….

Amazing views of architecture, sculptures, cafes and restaurants....all in one place. This piazza is central to Florence; around the corner from the Uffizi gallery and the Ponte Vecchio.

Coffee is a little more expensive at this piazza but the view and people watching more than make up for it. Beautiful by day and night. The Outdoor statue of David replica is here so it can get a little busy but out of season it is perfect.

This is one of my (many) favorite places in Florence. I loved seeing all the statues. One of the few piazza's I've been where one can easily spend 20 minutes looking around before settling down at a restaurant.

Piazza della Signoria is nice, it does get packed with people but it's great. It's right in front of Il Palazzo Vecchio which is a great building.
