An eclectic mix of great statues

Mix of interesting statues from Roman Times through the Rennaissance. Definitely worth a visit! Great view and photo-op of David (copy) through columns and statues.

Located in the heart of Florence, at Piazza della Signoria. This loggia houses numerous statues. Just sit there and admire the art around you for free.

Florence is a world highlight destination when it comes to art and sculpture and Loggia dei Lanza, the outdoor terrace at Piazza della Signoria, is one of the genuine highlights in Florence, for anyone with interest in Roman and classical style sculptures. Originally constructed in 1382 for the purpose of house assemblies, public ceremonies and swearing into office, the loggia... More

It's not hard to spend a few minutes at Loggia - it's free and in front of the Uffizi Gallery and Vecchio Palazza so you can't miss it. For those who've never seen it, Loggia is effectively a small "outdoor" gallery, walled on two sides and with a multi-arched ceiling, which is free to visitors. It contains some truly beautiful...

There are so many beautiful art works in the Loggia, thanks to the Medici. Amazingly well preserved and so very special.

Located in an open square, there are several nice sculptures. Not much info other than 2 boards located in the middle stating the sculpture name and sculptor. Still a place to spend some time and admire the beauty

Loggia dei Lanzi is not only a great place to rest in Piazza della Signoria, but also an open air museum of the beautiful florentine art and sculptures. The Rapture of the Sabines, the Perseus, and all of those are free. No tickets, no lines.

Looking like an open air warehouse where priceless statuary waits until a permanent home is found for it, the Loggia dei Lanzi ticks all the boxes: brilliance in art, drama and free access. Somewhere that you can gawp in wonder and leisurely eat an ice-cream before it rolls down your arm.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
