A lovely open space between the Duomo and the |Uffizi Gallery with several great pieces of sculpture including a copy of David. Well worth taking the time to just stroll or sit and reflect with a coffee.

This open air piazza holds so much history. The statues in the portico to one side are essential to understanding how art was displayed and the statues themselves are woven into the history of Florence. Grab guidebook or look up information about them online before going. Beyond that, just breathing the same air as this bustling site makes you happy... More

We visited the same day the Pope did. Needless to say there were lots of barricades, big screens, police, and people in the piazza. Everyone was watching the Pope on the big screens so out of respect we weren't really able to do the tourist thing but we will certainly try it again the next time we are in Florence.

All this area in Florence brings you back to the renaissance, fantastic buildings and atmosphere. Ideal to just walk and sit for a few minutes to enjoy this area.

A very busy square in the heart of Florence. The sculptures around the plaza are beautiful and the church is quite a sight. Everywhere you look there's something incredible to admire and learn about. Well worth a visit

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.
