Next to the cathedral is this lovely big square with a fountain and sculptures well worth seeing. Sitting in the square people watching while enjoying an exorbitantly priced drink and cover charge can be very pleasant if you have the cash to spare.

Really interesting piazza with impressive statues - including David replica. Very busy. Horse drawn tours of the area can be taken from here- highly recommended to get a first glimpse of all the things you need to visit. Outside restaurants also offer excellent brunch/ lunch/ afternoon snack to take in the view.

Another Piazza, but still very interesting and a replica of David here too. Beautiful old buildings and statues - makes us realize how we don't have very much in the way of history.

The centre of medieval Florence. Apart from the obvious sites, have a look at the Gucci museum, very interesting in itself but also remember that this is the building of the old guilds, something like the Wall Street of the 15th century. Also try not to miss the bronze plaque that shows the very spot where Savonarola explored the dichotomy... More

This is a major and popular piazza. There are many statues including a copy of the statue of David in front of the Palazzo Vecchio where the original statue stood. Other statues are in the loggia and other places in the piazza. It is very crowded with tourists but it is a must see.

During our six nights in Florence we passed through this piazza several time each day, going to and from our hotel (Hotel degli Orafi). We often stopped for lunch at the outdoor restaurant.

Florence is a great city with hundreds of do not miss attractions.It is easy to get caught up in the rush for tickets to the Uffizi and Academia galleries and miss a piazza that is loaded with history and some of the most unique sculptures you will ever see.And all this is available gratis,right next to the Uffizi gallery,in front...

This is such a beautiful square especially when it's not crowded. Come at a time when it is virtually empty and it is incredibly atmospheric. But even when it is full of tourists, the architecture is breathtaking and there are bars where you can sit outside and take it all in.

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.
