This Piazza is host to several statues which includes Medici figures, David (not the original) and other significant ones. The Mayor added several new pieces of art which are in gold color (the huge turtle and the staircase to heaven/clouds). You'll also see the Gucci Museum here which you can visit for only 7 euros.

This is probably my favorite piazza from our trip... the one I will return to as my mental "happy place." It was always humming with life and energy but at the same time seemed roomy and comfortable and peaceful. There was also plenty of seating (on the stairs) so you could relax and enjoy the ambiance. Imagine you are surrounded... More

The Piazz della Signore is well known for its statues, the Ufizi, close to the Ponte Vecchio so you definitely pass by this plaza! For me, it reminds me of a lot of movies, but as well a good first impression of the statues of Michelangelo and a first glimpse of David!

A visit to the Piazza della Signoria is always time well spent! My abortive experience there was at night, all of the statues were lit up and there was a woman signing opera in the square...it was nothing short of magical!

We passed through here every day during our four day stay and never tired of it. You will see a copy of Michelangelo's David along with work from Giambologna, Cellini, and Donatello. You can also see the spot where Savonarola was killed. A few restaurants and bars line the Piazza place to sit and take it all in. A must... More

The location is very central to everything in Florence. Several statues, including the copy of the Michelango's David, if you can't get to the real one. A couple of new modern sculpture's ( a golden turtle with a rider and a man measuring the sky??) which I don't think fits. Lots of restaurants in the area, and plenty of places... More

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.
