I love, love, love the Piazza della Signoria and the fountain of Neptune is my favourite statue! I don't understand why it was hated by Florentines. The statue of Neptune is in a very natural pose and sexy as hell!

Being on the Piazza della Signoria this fountain is hard to miss. Easily accessible and picture worthy :-)

Excellent fountain in a corner in front of the Palazzo Vecchio. Well preserved and now shielded with a row of plants. Best view at night time with the lights.

We love this area and the giant white figure of Neptune contrast to the green copper figures that surround it, photographs well day or night.

Intricate detailing in the sculpture of the statues and looked beautiful in our family photographs. The water of the fountain sparkling on the statues in the morning sun was beautiful to see.

I visited Florence with family in April. The fountain provides a lovely photo opportunity in the Piazza della Signoria.

This is a magnificent fountsin and the statue of Neptune is magnificent. There was no water in the fountain, and it did spoil the effect, but the magnificent sculptures were still magnificent.

Neptune's fountain is part of the attractions in piazza Signoria, it is smaller than the Neptune's fountain in Madrid. But gives an additional highlights to the panoramic view of piazza and the palazzo vecchio plus the restaurants nearby.Early morning or late night is the best time to visit this attraction.

We enjoyed a picnic lunch in this piazza. The fountain was not flowing this day in November, but I'm sure it looks great when it is going.
