The loggia has some of my favorite sculptures in the world. Often there are musical events at night around the Loggia. Good people watching. I would rather sit and hang/sketch here than go back to the Uffizi, even if it were free.

This is a free outdoor sculpture garden near the Uffizi gallery, worth checking out. Allow 15 minutes or so.

A series of statues are protected here under a canopy. As with many of the plazas in Florence there is much to see and enjoy.

What a nice spot off the Piazza to view the sculptures. Lovely spot, but a bit crowded and a place to keep stock of your belongings.

An open air sculpture gallery on the Piazza Della Signoria, the Loggia built at the end of the 14th century was originally the assembly area and later the guard room of the Lanzi, or foot soldiers of Cosimo I. It has a marvelous collection of Classical and Renaissance statues that you can get up close to.

Where else in the world can you walk up to beautiful works of art and sit down next to them. Anyone not impressed must be blind.
