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.

This open-aired gallery of statues is a must-see. Some of the greatest statuary in the world sits outside for everyone to share, within 50 yards of each other. The Perseus, Rape of the Sabine Woman, Hercules and the Centaur, and the now-moved David provide a captivating backdrop for the great people-watching in the plaza. We ate sandwiches from La Proscutteria... More

This is a really nice area that tells a lot of interesting stories in the sculptures contained here. This is a small part of the Piazza della Signoria, outside of the Uffizi and near the Ponte Vecchio. Grab a sandwich or gelato nearby and take some time to wander the piazza and see this area as well!
