Perseus with the Head of Medusa stands guard over this loggia, which offers some shade, a lot of sculptures packed in, and hordes of people milling about. It's a decent place to cop a squat if you need to sit a minute in the shade.

Violent display of male dominance over women: the rape of the Sabines, the rape of Polyxena, Perseus holding the severed head of Medusa....fascinating....and all are originals, that is as long as iconoclasts keep their hands off them...or they will have to be locked up in museums, like the others..

Very interesting and beautiful art work around the square in Florance. We were lucky to see a march of all the forces at the day.

I am always amazed to be able to see so much fabulous artwork out in the open where everyone can enjoy it at no charge. I was there one morning all by myself with only one security guard and no tourists. Divine!

An open air museum with some lovely pieces of sculpture here. It is so easy to lose more time than you expect here looking at the sculptures but they are superb and worthy of some of your hard pressed time in Florence It also provides some respite from the sun and heat too!

The art itself is great but when you put it on the end of the Uffizzi Gallery on the Piazza del Signoria it makes it that much more important and a must see. It helps make the Piazza del Signoria the prime place it is, Great sculpture and statues, plus it is open and free. This along with the statues... More

Great place to watch people, right on the Piazza Signoria, adjacent to the Uffizi. Best time to see it, though, is in the evening… the art is beautiful but it's really about the people and the place. There is always something going on. Try to visit on one of those evenings where there's a local band in front of the... More

Museums wish they had the sculptures Florence displays in this Loggia. The Perseus almost caused the artist Cellini to have a nervous breakdown because the casting was so difficult but it is perfection. The Rape of the Sabines by Giambologna exhibits amazing technical skill in a 3 figure spiraling theme never before attempted. His Hercules and Nessus is carved from... More

One of my favourite spots in Florence! I was amazed by the statues. My favourite one is Persues and Medusa.
