The essence of florence

The whole piazza takes you back in time to the center of florence in the post renaissance period. The city hall and the various statutes are almost like they were centuries ago.

Firenze is for living, its people know the story and it is beautiful to listen. Fiirenze es para vivirla, sus habitantes saben la historia y es hermoso escucharlos.

It worth the walk even if the weather can be unbearable in July with crowds at every inches of piazza. This piazza is in very heart of Florence and many restaurants near by and shop along the side of the piazza too. Prepare to dress a little nicer. There are statues everywhere you look and picture perfect too.

This piazza is for sure one of the best Piazza found in Florence this is since here one can see with his eyes architecture at its best within the various buildings, such as Palazzo Vecchio and Loggia dei Lanzi.

Renting an Airbnb on the piazza. Given noise levels, not sure if this was the best idea or not. Go to the Piazza before it wakes up, 7am or so. Then you can really see it.

This piazza hosts not only the Palazzo Vecchio, the statue of David, and the Loggia dei Lanzi, but also some of the fanciest cafes and hotels in Florence. It also hosts modern art displays from time to time. During our visit, the glimmering metallic works of Jan Fabre were gracing the public areas of Florence, and a giant frog had... More

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

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.

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.
