Surprisingly not busy as people crowded in the piazza on a Saturday holiday weekend, this gallery shows Renaissance and Roman sculptures in a more classic setting than the Palazzo and Uffizi which are adjacent. I suspect originally a place for meetings it has become a worthy space for art, a rendezvous, a shelter from sun and rain. It is easy... More

We visited here in early October 2013. We loved the loggia for the wonderful sculptures that are here for all the public to see, walk around and touch. There is a real sense of being at the heart of the city touching back to its history of art and culture.

Another must do in florance is that open air free museum. Having many marble sculptures in piazza della signorina- one of the most famous is perseus and medusa.

You can view a few amazing statues here, including the famous marble piece by Giambologna, The Rape of the Sabine Women. Nice shady place to rest your tired feet and sit along the wall to gaze out onto Piazza della Signoria, after your visit to the nearby Uffizi,

This beautiful loggia is located in Piazza della Signoria across from Palazzo Vecchio. It is one of the free things you can do in Florence but depending how much you are into art it will not take you that long to wander through these replica statues. All of the originals are located in various museums around Florence. It is nice... More

The Piazza della Signoria is usually filled with tourists, but very few seem to notice the loggia full of great art. The sculptures are terrific and the setting in the loggia is great. for some reason, it's hardly ever crowded.

The Piazza has many things to see, but arguably the most engaging is this open-air, free sculpture gallery. You will not be disappointed, despite the crowds & the pigeons. And the shade was most welcome during our 7-hour walking tour of Florence on Friday August 29.

I really love this open air gallery. There are many nice breathtaking statues especially the bronze sculpture of Perseus with beheaded Medusa head by Cellini. Please don't touch the statues - a museum guard onsite reprimanded the tourists for touching the statues. A must visit when you are in beautiful Florence.

Loved this open air gallery. The sculpture is breath-taking and is unbelievably free to view in this somewhere pricy city. It feels like an oasis of calm away from the massively busy Piazza della Signoria on which it sits. A must-see in Florence, in my view!
