This place is amazing and you must go here. We were where in the piazza right after there was a 10k run across the city, so it was really busy. The amount of statues is amazing and the history is epic.

This is a wonderful place to go. There are ancient statues just sitting around waiting for you to study and ponder. The square may be a little crowded from time to time, but it is worth the walk and time to hang around. This is a must see experience for Florence.

It was fun to visit all of the churches, and watch the children at play in the streets and piazzas. The artists and street performers were fun to watch. Be aware of the illegal sales man..relly pushing selfie sticks this year.

A fantastic square, typical Italian, hustle and bustle. The buildings are exquisite, as are the statues. Take in the excitement of the tourist groups taking selfies, group photos or memories to take home.Go into the museum if you have time, very interesting history

I enjoyed sitting and resting after a long walk here. It's fantastic to look at the many sculptures and watch people go by.

Very pretty and I would recommend the Gucci cafe. Our guide explained that the replica David is facing towards Rome where the Medici family "Goliaths" were exiled to

Amazing public space. Beautiful statues, a copy of David, great buildings to contemplate. The selfie-stick sellers are not as numerous or aggressive as in Rome, which is a blessing. The nearby stalls have lots of items to bargain for.

The piazza is surrounded by restaurants and shops. Certainly a nice place for photo shooting with all those beautiful buildings.

Florence was our favorite place on our trip to Italy! We simply fell in LOVE with the people, the energy, the culture and of course the food. Evenings in Florence were like no other place, and Piazza della Signoria captured this feeling perfectly. It is alive with live music, the statues gracefully surrounding the Piazza and locals and tourists alike... More
