You can just feel the history here. We had breakfast one morning in the old cafe and a dinner one evening in one the restaurants, and it was so nice just to be able to admire the Palazzo Vecchio and the statues while eating.

This site neighbors quite a few museums and cathedrals. It is also adjacent to shopping locales and restaurants.

The Piazza della Signoria was only a couple of blocks from our apartment so we used it as the place to meet up almost daily. The art is amazing, the statuary is out of this world, and the whole experience is a must. It does get crowded when the tours come it, but worth fighting a few crowds.

The honest truth is that I consider museums somewhat boring. However, I really like Piazza della Signoria, which is more an outdoor museum. You can spend as much or as little time as you wish at this place and that works for me. Tool lots of pictures at this Piazza.

The Piazza is absolutely beautiful, regardless the weather and the time of the day or year. All the buildings there are having thei own spirit.

Pretty interesting thing to see and there are a lot of other beautiful things to see off this square as well as all the beautiful buildings around it.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
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.
