great piazza for people watching
Sep 2021
This is our favorite piazza in Florence. Great place to take a break and people watch, or have a drink.

Easily my favorite piazza in Florence
Sep 2021
My favorite. This piazza features outdoor sculptures, magnificent architecture, cafes, and a Neptune fountain amongst other things. It gave off the feel of an outdoor museum of sorts (FREE of course!) There are benches where you can give you feet a rest and grab a gelato...great people watching. It's not far from the other piazzas as well. Come at night for stunning blue hour photos.

Classic Florentine

An excellent place to people watch at the cafes or with a sandwich sitting on the steps in front of the statue gallery.

Heart of Florence
Sep 2021
It goes without saying that anybody visiting Florence should walk through Piazza Della Signoria... when you do, make sure that you go into Palazzo Vecchio for a look around (even without visiting the full museum) and that you take a good look at the statues in the Loggia dei Lanzi.

Lovely

While in Florence, you may find yourself traversing through here a couple times. Make time to get the great photos. Got lucky and saw a wedding in the square when I went. Another must see and plenty of food places.

Another beautiful piazza
Aug 2021 • Couples
The is another impressive piazza with beautiful structures and lots of space. You can wander the piazza, grad something to eat, or look at the sculptures. Worth seeing and a short walk from the duomo.

One of my favorite places in the world
Jul 2021
The history that surrounds you in this square is astounding if you take a second just to take it in. From the palace where the Medicis ruled and the original David stood for hundreds of years, to the loggia where citizens could speak their minds, to the spot where Savanarola had the bonfire of the vanities (and where he himself burned) to the Uffizi with some of the most amazing art in the world ... all within one 360 turn. There are even good restaurants nearby. Loved it.

sooo much here!
Jul 2021
So much beauty, so much history, so much art, so much culture... truly amazing! I came and returned to this spot multiple times while in Florence and also appreciated filling up my water bottle with still and fizzy water on the side of the palace.
