Great to be in the heart of florence with it all happening around you. Statues are amazing. However the restaurants can be over priced and not taste that amazing. Well worth a visit

No Italian city, town or even village is exactly short of a piazza and Firenze has a huge offering, but Piazza della Signoria must rate as the standout in Firenze. Yes it get busy but that's not without good reason and it's certainly big enough to cope. Bars and ristorante abound..try the great Bar Perseo right on one corner for... More

Large and very clean. We came during spring break and it was loaded with packs of students. They could get a little loud but that's what made it fun :) surrounded by great restaurants and shops and the wonderful Uffizi gallery to name a few of the beautiful landmarks. A must see for sure!

Probably the most popular of the Piazzas. Restaurants are ok, but more expensive than Piazza Santa Croce. Has the fabulous Rivoire cafe & chocolate shop. I recommend a cappacino at Rivoire and just people watch for an hour or two.

This is a beautiful piazza, the artwork on display is just amazing, the copy of the David is almost as impressive as the original. The Palazzo Vecchio is just Grand!!!

My husband and I visited this Piazza in mid-March while on a group tour with Gate 1 Travel. This is a Piazza not to miss. Great to just sit out and people watch, the scenery is spectacular and enjoy a gelato! The day we were here was very busy with a parade with lots of flags tossed around, and even... More

Can't miss this sight where most others in Florence are crowded and have long lines for the unprepared who did not book in advance (guilty). It is a dramatic, gorgeous piazza in a central location! It can get crowded here as well but there are no lines and it is free! Loved the replica of Poseidon cutting off the head... More

Add visiting this famous Piazza to your itinerary while visiting Florence. There is a fabulous collection of sculptures, most of which are copies, to enjoy, including the magnificent copy of David (real one is in the Accademia), the Rape of a Sabine, Heracles and Cacus and Perseus and Medusa...just not to be missed! The Piazza is renowned as the location... More
