A beautiful city with stunning sculptures, art, Roman architecture, restaurants are also reasonably priced. Visiting in August, by 11am it was overcrowded with people coming at you from all directions. I would recommend Lucca and Siena as better alternatives. Make sure you are book a ticket online to see David as the queue in August at 11am was 2.5 hrs,... More

Almost inevitable if your walking around Florence, you'll stumble across this Piazza. There are a large number of statues dating back centuries. Lots of variety and worth stopping and pausing.

I punt a average score for this square just because it seems they have thrown statues around the square... It is amazing, off course, but my opinion is that for a square like this, they should have maintained a little with more attention. This is another MUST SEE off course, and captured in the memory.

This central piazza in Florence has many of key pieces of art and is easily accessible, just as is the beautiful ground floor of the Palazzo Vecchio in the square. A good starting point for any visit to Florence, big enough to make it worth a visit despite the great number of tourists (like ourselves of course)

The piazza is a fabulous location right in the heart of wonderful Florence. The square contains a wonderful collection of sculpture of the very best artists of Renaissance era. A wonderful David replica, a “garden” of sculpture in the eastern colonnade and much more. The square has several Coffee places, especially the famous Rivoire. The Palazzo Vechio is a great... More

A vibrant square with gorgeous sculptures and a replica of David. If you can't get into the Academia to see the original, you must make it to this square to at least see the copy.

This piazza is a must see, with so many statues of all sorts of varieties it is a sight to see and of course there's one of Florence's 3 Michaelangelo's available to photo with.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Uffizi
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.
