This open air gallery is a great place to stop and relax. My wife and I watched as a newly wed bride and groom had their pictures taken and another lady sat and sketched. What a city.

It consists of wide arches open to the street; built between 1376 and 1382. The architectural settings and the statues are absolutely amazing.

Definitely give yourself a half hour to look at these beautiful sculptures, some of which have been standing in the Loggia for almost 500 years.

The statues in this vaulted-ceiling, shaded area are some of the finest in the city. All of them are remarkable in their own ways, and each of them can take up as much of your time as you want it to. In summer, it's a shady respite, and in winter it's a break from the wind to be under cover.... More

After seeing tremendous sculptures in many museums - the ones that are here are just OK. Given that it is free though - no complaints about free street art. It takes about 5 minutes to view as you are walking by.

I love this section of the city. Some of the pieces are replicas but there's a few nestled in there that are original masterpieces. If you have time it's worth it to track down all the replicas of Michelangelo's David statues thought the city. It makes Florence truly a spectacular city.

This is a 14th century open air gallery with beautiful arches. It is right at Piazza della Signoria . You wouldn’t miss it. It’s not just a historical building also it’s the home of lots of collections of impressive sculptures like Perseus after he beheaded Medusa, the Sabine Virgins marble sculpture and many more. The Lion Statue guards the entrance.... More

This is just next to Uffizi Gallery and facing the famous square of Piazza Della Signoria. It is open air and FOC to public and it was a real shame for me as i first thought it was just normal decorations part of the Uffizi Gallery. I was wrong obviously. I must say this is an excellent showcase of masterpiece... More
