Similar to Trafalgar Square in London or Dam Square in Amsterdam, this is both a social gathering spot as well as a gateway to significant museums. It will be crowded with tour groups in different languages following the tour leader holding up a flag as well as individuals trying to get the key photographs or starting to queue for the... More

Statues statues everywhere. A wonderful replica of David if you don't get to the Academia where the original David lives.

A hub for eating, drinking, socializing with an impressive and imposing 'imitation' David to add to the ambience. Restaurants are high priced because of the real estate...be prepared, and prices are higher outdoors rather than indoors. Best plan is to order a drink, sit at a cafe table, soak up the ambience and enjoy the views.

Certainly lots to see in this Piazza, almost every direction you turn you are taking a photo of something to remember. A very popular spot, and a must see.

The piazza is surrounded by excellent places to eat throughout the day at a reasonable cost. The Town Hall is well worth a visit as is the Gucci Fashion museum. In the evening there is usually open air entertainment in the form of concerts. A lively place - look out for Fernado - the dancing policeman!

Not a classical piazza in some ways, as it is L-shaped and quirky in that it has sculptures at one end. A few restaurants along the periphery where one can spend time and watch tourists gawping at the sculptures or enjoying a music concert. All in all a good place to spend a relaxing 2 to 3 hours with a... More

Impressive main square and landmark of this most gorgeous city in world. Seen in all Hollywood movies but just sitting there in open restaurant with a glass o channti and see the people- The Loggia della Signoria, the Uffizi Gallery, the Palace and the Jupiter fountain is an experience where one feels the time has stopped!

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.
