Statues (all copies) are wonderful. Most intriguing is the Lacoon, only newly discovered in Michelangelo's time.

We stumbled on this whilst wandering Florence. Near the Uffizi, it is on the corner and is an open building with statues surrounded by some columns. Take you time and have a look it is well worth while. It built in the 1300's. Just amazing that it is left open for all to see.

This is a free must see. If you like David which you can see from here, then take some time and look at these wonderful sculptures.

Don't walk by like the rest. The amount of people that didn't even stop here was astounding! Admittedly some of the statues are a bit dull, but the majority are very powerful such as Hercules and Perseus.

It is amazing to see tourists walk right by the Loggia without giving it a second look. Some of the most famous statues in Italian Renaissance art history are on display--and it is free. Of particular note is Giovanni de Bologna's Capture of the Sabine Women--a tour de force of twisted marble figures on par with best of Bernini.

A great history of the Sculptures of the Gothic days. Something we will loose over time with the digital age.

One of two masterpieces at the Loggia dei Lanzi (Loggia della Signoria) by Flemish sculpture Giambologna, is the figure of Hercules beating the Centaur Nessus (1599), found next to his more celebrated sculpture, Ratto della Sabine. This is a most impressive sculpture of Hercules, pinning Nessus in an awkward position and about to strike a crushing blow to his opponent.... More

The Loggia dei Lanzi has several well known statues which are worth seeing. It is right by the Uffizi and Palazzo Vecchio so take a few minutes to check it out. The Rape of the Sabine Woman is there. (If you go to the Accademia Gallery, you will see the plaster cast of it.) It is very crowded with school... More

It's just really fascinating to me, as an American, to see so much money and effort put into a piazza. To have this loggia on one side, full of statues and replicas (in some cases) as a part of the ambiance makes this entire area just fill with life. There is a lot to see here and a guidebook would...
