The Loggia dei Lanzi is generally busy but the statues, some original, others replicas, make the building an interesting place to spend some time admiring the sculptures. Nearby are some noted museums and when you have finished there are plenty of good places to buy a gelato.

We must have visited many buildings while we were in florence but this had to be my favourite. It seems to have to rhyme or reason for it's being but to house a few sculptures. But it's sense of grandure and space impressed me. The lighting in the evenings is impressive has it shadows the grand sculptures. Just stand and... More

These Piazzas are always crowded. It was evident when we visited in 2006 and the tremendous time spent in viewing all the sculptures is worth it.

Amazing statues that tell amazing stories. Spend some time really appreciating the story they are telling as well as how the style fits into the Renaissance

If you are interested in the sculptures, it is quite difficult to see them as it is so busy. Seems to be a meeting-place for many people and hence is always crowded.

This is a must to visit in Florence and cannot be missed by any tourist walking around. There are various sculptures from many of the greats and a map that describes each. Some are reproductions but others are the real thing. It is located within walking distance or steps from Palazzio Vecchio and Uffizi museum. You can also walk to... More

Just like the piazza it sits on this venue is perfect for watching the local musicians and other local talent perform. Grab a sit and relax while people watching.

Loggia dei Lanzi is located just next to the Palazzo Vecchio entrance and Uffizi, hosting a number of statues that can make everybody to understand the cultural and artistic impact that Florence have to the entire world. It's a good place to rest before visiting other important attraction of this fantastic city.

Right next to the Palazzo Vecchio, you can't miss the sculptures displayed here. It's unfortunate the track lighting runs across the arches, and that the illegal vendors point their laser lights all over it at night, but neither take away from the beauty of the works of art there.
