Just as incredible as just about everything in Florence. Sculture of thr highest standard which can be viewed without entering a museum.

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!

This loggia is like a tiny free outdoor museum! The marble sculpted statues are amazing and when you see it you will immediately notice what the highlight of the Loggia is ;)

As a history & architecture buff, as well as art lover, there's nothing to dislike about this loggia. It is itself a wonderfully elegant, curious part of the plaza it faces, those huge round arches and slender columns making a stark contrast to the heavy, solid, fortress-look of the neighboring Palazzo Vecchio. (Head over to Ospedale Innocenti sometime, to see... More

Day or night, this Loggia is a great place to marvel at the great sculptures on display, and to just sit and people watch. However, come here at night, and the lighting changes it all, in the loggia, but also looking out to the Piazza della Signoria... and if you are lucky enough, just sit and relax, and listen to...
