A Piazza full of history and links so many areas together. Many statues and fine displays of architecture . It also has many fine café's and shops around the edges. Close to the Ufizzi and Palazzo Vecchio both of which need to be seen. This areas is not to be missed on any trip to Florence.

Great examples of fine sculptures and nearby buildings. Would have been great to ponder them a bit longer but the crowds are virtually unbearable. People pose all over the sculptures so you can't get a clear decent shot.

It seems like ½ of the world was gathered there in October. It was so crowded that we fled as fast as possible.

Well like most Italian Statues they leave nothing to the imagination, they all look to be sex crazy. Its a nice Piazza and the fountain is lovely. Unfortunately although Florence is a lovely city it gets to crowded and for people with Walking difficulties makes it very hard to get around.

This is a beautiful Piazza with its fountain with Neptune. You will find the fake David here - it is NOT the same as the real one. The original has awe and character that you will not experience just doing the copy, neither are they equal in size. The open air museum is beautiful and a must see and absolutely... More

There are several Piazzas in Florence but Signoria is the best for me. I most liked the corner for the statues , they were beautiful.When you look very close you see every detail of the human body. They look like they waited for the sculptor to get out of from the marple stone .

It seems that every night my husband and I ended up coming back to Piazza della Signoria. It's even more beautiful at night. We really enjoyed the outdoor performances. My favorite night was sitting outside at one of the restaurants at the piazza and listening to the live opera. Very romantic spot in Florence! I highly recommend it for couples.
