The Piazza della Signoria is a great place to wander around, and admire the beautiful Palazzo Vecchio, Loggia dei Lanzi, and copy of the statue of David. It is busy, but especially lovely late at night, when it is quieter and beautifully lit up! Lovely!

Busier than other piazzas but worth seeing as its been like this for almost a century. Perhaps one to go early and get pictures before the crowds.

This is one of the best spots in Florence where you could enjoy art and good little Italian espresso. The only thing is that it is mostly crowded and taken over by the various tour groups and tourists leaving you very tiny space of breathing and marveling the visuals around the place but nonetheless there is nothing this to a...

Piazza della Signoria is a busy square with the Vechio Palace, access to Uffizi and Vasari Corridor and the Ponte Vechcio bridge. Outdoors museum in the Logia is spectaculat but the whole square is definitely very well visited by tourists which makes it irritating at times when you have been there a couple of times are are just passing through

This piazza is roomy, offers many hidden delights and allows you to see beautiful sculptures without walls. You walk around and around and each view is a photo. We enjoyed walking around while waiting to enter the Uffizi Gallery. You can shop, get money, grab a coffee and see some amazing art all around this one piazza. Sigh, to see... More

Loved, loved, love this square with all the amazing scuptures and fountain (including a fake David), especially the Perseus sculpture (love mythology). It literally is a free, open air museum! Go with a guide to get the most out of it as there is much history and symbolism there and go at night when its lit up and not mobbed... More

Well Worth spending time around , close to duomo and Uffizi. I must admit that it can not be compared to Uffizi but still have arts worth seeing, can be enjoyable most early morning as it gets crowded towards noon , so if you have time around duomo , make sure you spare some for Piazza della Signoria

A stunning Piazza that we have been visiting frequently over a 40yr period. A bit like any major attraction, eg: Rome's Fontana Trevi, if you want to really appreciate it, try & go early in the morning, or later in the evening when the tour groups haven't flooded the area... it's well worth taking in senza crowds!
