“Semplicemente bellissima!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

One cannot say he's seen art, ...until he breathed Florence's air, has touched and smelled it's atmosphere, has walked on its narrow streets, has seen all its works of art.
Piazza della Signoria cannot be described, it'll simply leave you speechless!

“ENJOY WHAT THE MEDICI WROUGHT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

Enjoy just walking around the Piazza. It is filled with people, tourists and Florentines. View the statuary. Step into the Palazzo Vecchio. Just enjoy being in the hub of the city.

“You cannot miss it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

The center of historical Florence, it must be seen and enjoyed leisurely, even if there are masses of tourists from all parts of the world. Find a place, sit and feast your eyes!

“Top tips for visiting Piazza della Signoria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Tip 1: You wouldn't know whats going on with this Piazza if you don't know the history. Just like us, we didnt know the history so we download Rick Steve audio guide mp3 podcast and it helped us understand the history of this piazza, very interesting!

Tip 2: Beware of pickpockets!

Tip 3: The replica statue of David is just right here, it is almost as real as the real one, so dont bother going to the main museum - Gallery of the Academy of Fine Arts because its a waste of money

Tip 4: There is nothing much to do in this Piazza except admiring the marble statues. Move on to Uffizi or Ponte Vecchio if your bored.

“Incredible Square in the Heart of Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

We emerged into this piazza from one of the small side streets and were at once amazed by how large and how beautiful it is. Of course, there is the copy of the statue of David with lots of people posing beside it, but there are so many other beautiful statues... and the fountain.....and the palaces! We stood for ages just staring up at the buildings - you can see so much (there is a lion crawling up a spire on the top of one of the buildings!) You really felt like you were in a totally unique place here - you must go and see it!!
