Amazing collection of original reproduction and classic sculptures (the real David is elsewhere) you can also access the Palazzo Vecchio and what apparently looks like the Medici's garage sale!!

Our hotel was on the Piazza - great restaurants for people watching in a hard to beat location. The piazza has one of the copies of the statue of David, a number of other statues as well as the Palazzo Vecchio.

Piazza Signoria is a square where the Statue of David is located. It is also near the house of the famous author of the Divine Comedy, Dante Alighieri. It also near or walking distance to the shopping center, the Doumo, Sta. Croce and other leather shops (which is Florence is very famous for). Every angle in this place is just... More

A beautiful piazza in Florence, my favorite over Piazza Republica. Beautiful statues and fountain and you can also see a copy of the Statue of David in front of the Building. A must visit.

Spectacular square in the shadow of the beautiful Palazzo Vecchio with it's graceful clock tower. Frequently the site of free concerts in the summer. Beautiful by day, but even better for a fun nighttime stroll.

A lively yet romantic Piazza. There are many activities going on here, with several street artists and performers livening up this space. Spray painting artists, guitarists (watch him play <Time to Say Goodbye>!), sketch artists etc... Made this place very lively at night. I personally really enjoy the guitarist's skills (go buy his CD!), his music gave this Piazza a... More

I think everyone visiting Florence visits here. It is a must. Around Piazza, there are outstanding museums including Uffizi, and outstanding restaurants.

This is a wonderful central location, with elegant shops, restaurants and of course, the elegant Caffé Rivoire. It is the meeting place of Florentines as well as numerous tourists, with its location near to the Ponte Vecchio, the Piazza del Duomo and providing the gateway to Uffizi Gallery. A delightful spot.

During my visit to Florence, I came to this square after I explored Ponte Vecchio. I came in through the side street so I wasn't expecting much but as soon as I saw the square and the statues that adorn it, I was stunned. I couldn't look away. I examined each and every one of them and spent hours there... More
