Beautiful architecture and many statues. Worth the walk in the Piazza Signoria. Each of the statues has a history behind it. Be sure to to take something along to know the history behind each one. It will be time well spent.

This outdoor array of statues is worth seeing if you are in Florence. The structure of the Loggia itself once housed Cosimo's bodyguards. The statues that now comprise the essence of this attraction are epic including works by Giambologna, Cellini and Gaddi. We went there the first time in the middle of the day during our July visit. It was... More

They often had orchestras or bands playing there which really added to the atmosphere in the evenings

Loggia dei Lanzi is the greatest outdoor Museum in the world, housing works by Benvenutto Cellini and Giambologna, who are top-ten among Renaissance sculptors... and it´s free!!! Cellini's Perseus with the head of Medusa is the brightest star in the show.

In this logia you will find about ten statues, made from marble or bronze. Although the originals can be found in musea, it is very nice to walk around the loggia. As this part of the square is often very crowded, for making some nice pictures you can decide to visit in the early morning or late afternoon.

Not sure how I missed reviewing this when I flooded TA with all of my musings on our January trip to Italy, but the Loggia dei Lanzi is not to be missed. It's right next to the Uffizi Gallery and is part of Piazza della Signoria, so there's really no excuse to miss it if you're visiting either of those... More

This open air sculpture gallery adjoins the Uffizi Gallery and was built in the 14th century. It was built to protect dignitaries from the weather during ceremonies, public meetings and events. It eventually became the home to several statues, the most noteworthy being a statue showing Perseus after he killed Medusa. Other sculptures on display here are the "Abduction of... More

The loggia forms part of the Piazza della Signoria and contains several interesting sculptures, the most famous being Perseus, holding the severed head of Medusa.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
