Beautiful place to have dinner!

This is not a far walk from the Duomo and is beautiful with lots of art to see for free. We had dinner here and was not that expensive at all. Ponte Vecchio short walk from here

I love this square, I have since the first time I visited about 20 years ago :) It brings great character and diversity of activities. You can just look around for a long long time. So much to see!

We walked through the Piazza della Signoria. Always a must see. Usually there is something going on dueing the day. Love the statues. The best gelato that I had during our 4 1/2 week trip through Italy this summer was a gelato shop on the N.W. corner of Piazza della Signoria, on the corner of Via Calzaiuoli.

This is a great piazza to take pictures, but personally I think it is even prettier at night. Everything is lit up and there are sometimes bands who play in the area. In the morning there is sometimes a procession that passes through for the Ufizzi. Very pretty. Good place to buy cheap touristy things. If you are in this... More

We enjoyed looking at all the statues on this piazza, it's a great place to stroll around. Some of the statues are of ancient Roman/Greek gods and we enjoyed discussing them with our teenager, who knew a lot about them.

In an open air setting with the freedom to wander in and amongst this cluster of astoundingly beautiful statues, in natural light, was an opportunity of a lifetime. How can such perfection be carved from stone!

Great orginal art to look at in the area along with great people watching. Night times with illumination made this area pretty popular with tourists and locals alike.

The ambiance is very good at night time. Enjoy the statues, take pics, eat at the square and just relax.

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.
