This is a good spot for some cool photos and the perfect place to have a gelato! Lots of people around but not too crazy.

What can I say a free option to see the beautiful sculptures outside and you don't need to pay or queue in the long queues which you find. Great picture opportunity

Oh so incredible to see such a fine collection of sculpture by day-but even more magical after dark. Free and certainly one of the most visually stunning things to do in the evening.

This is a must see stop in Florence, particularly for those only visiting for a day or two and who cannot afford to wait in the long museum lines. There are many famous statues here including: Perseus with the Head of Medusa The Rape of the Sabine Women. Hercules beating the Centaur Nessus Menelaus supporting the body of Patroclus

Loved the Loggia, it was great to see the statues up close. I especially liked Perseus with the head of Medusa. Wonderful architecture, went there day and night, it's really well lit at night, and gives the statues a different feel. Definite must see!

This loggia is so amazing! You are able to walk all around those beautiful sculptures, in the lovely Piazza della Signoria. It is really special at night, when most of the tourists have gone, and the sculptures are lit up.
