I love this space. A great place to get a free and unrestricted look at some amazing ancient and renaissance sculpture. Perseo is my favorite of the pieces and you will probably recognize its gory awesomeness when you see it.

Cellini and Giambologna are stars here and elsewhere throughout this city. Here you can pass the time and soak in some of the masters (along with thousands of others every day). The best time to see these works is around 8am (or earlier). Perseus by Cellini is a captivating work and if looked at from behind you can see the... More

Amazing to have such wonderful sculptures to walk around just there in the open! All original pieces except the copy of the David. See if you can tell which lion is the Roman one!

Actually, this monument should be called "Loggia della Signoria", just like the palace opposite. "Lanzi" were the "lanzichenetti", "Landsknechte", German mercenaries paid by the Florentine, and they gave name to the loggia in younger times. Loggia della Signoria is the older and original name. The loggia was build in the 14th century so it's gothic. Later, statues were placed there... More

In our travels over Europe in June 2013 we certainly saw some statues, but here in Florence these ones were just breath taking. I have a real soft spot for statues and over the years I have found many statues and have taken heaps of photos. These were really something to behold and having them on display for everyone is...

The loggia has an impressive sculpture collection and also provides nice shade and shelter from the wind. On New Year's Eve, it housed a classical orchestra.

I guess it was ok, although I wouldn't go again just kind of look at it from afar. Would rather spend my time sitting at the piazza people watching.

Amazing statues, including 2 of my favourites (Perseus and Rape of the Sabiens), just outside, for everyone. I'm always amazed how well they are holding up. Well worth the stop. Also, since it has no closing time, you can even stop by in the evening for a look.

this is such a refreshing break from the stuffy museums - there's nothing like an open-air experience where you can sit amongst these amazing sculptures and enjoy a gelatto or people watch. there is no "best time" to go, it's enjoyable at all hours of the day and the statues will affect you differently each time you observe!
