Oh so incredible to see such a fine collection of sculpture by day-but even more magical after dark. Free and certainly one of the most visually stunning things to do in the evening.

The actual structure is quite interestingly built and the many statues which adorned it were well kept. We wondered what the site actually was as we walked along as it is quite unusual.

We visited Florence on a recent tour in Italy and came upon all these wonderful sculptures in the Loggia dei Lanzi. There are so many different statues in such a small area and it is free to view and photograph them. I loved all the marble sculptures but I especially liked the bronze statue of Perseus with Medusa's head. It... More

Loved the Loggia, it was great to see the statues up close. I especially liked Perseus with the head of Medusa. Wonderful architecture, went there day and night, it's really well lit at night, and gives the statues a different feel. Definite must see!

This loggia is so amazing! You are able to walk all around those beautiful sculptures, in the lovely Piazza della Signoria. It is really special at night, when most of the tourists have gone, and the sculptures are lit up.

classed as a free outdoors museum, this is a covered open air area with several statues. busy day and evening, you're not allowed to sit on the stairs, so beware. lit beautifully in the evening. also guitarists play in the evening, so great to sit, chill and listen in a beautiful environment

This square is always crowded but worth the visit never the less. This is a fantastic chance to seem some extremely famous statues, for free. Close to some of the most famous buildings in Florence, so easy to find. Make time for this in any trip to Florence.

The late C14th Loggia dei Lanzi has to be one of the greatest al fresco sculpture galleries in the world. It contains some miracles of sculptuary by geniuses/genii of the ancient world and the Renaissance. Alas, it is very hard to appreciate these, as with much else in Florence, for the place is filled with tourists like us. The individuals... More

Yes, I always love to have a cappuccino in the morning outside Rivoire and look at the Piazza Signoria, the Loggia and the fake David in front of the Palazzo Vecchio, along with Poseidon, the Great White One. Right after 9/11 I stood in that Piazza with 500 people, holding hands, while one bell tolled for all those dead in... More
