Amazing statues with so much history to tell - worth taking a look around on a tour to understand what each statue stands for.

The Loggia dei Lanzi is adjacent (part of) the Piazza della Signoria which hosts a number of sculptures such as Perseus (by Cellini) and The Rape (Abduction) of the Sabine Women (by Giambologna). These works of art are free to view. Within view is also the statue of David (by Michelangelo) - not the original one as this can be... More

The statutes are amazing here-- its a wonderful sculpture gallery. You can sit here and people watch and look at the art. Imagine Firenze in the time of the D'Medici's

This LOGGIA houses quite a number of amazing statues. You can sit on the stairs inside, and admire them for hours on end. No fee to pay.

The Loggia dei Lanzi offers a shady respite in the midst of the most visited portion of Florence. The sculpture collection is impressive and sitting on the steps out of the sun allows for some of the best people watching in Italy.

There are some eye catching sculptures at the Loggia dei Lanzi and it attracts tourists like a sugar bowl attracts ants.When we visited in the afternoon, it was teeming with tourists, so I guess it is best to visit early in the morning to have the square to yourself and admire the statues at your own leisure.A must visit though,...

Most of these statues would be the masterpiece of a museum anywhere In the world, but in the loggia you can see the statues of up to 2000 years old without paying any entrance. At the end of the afternoon there a not so much visitors anymore and the light is best.

I forgot to count the many interesting and fascinating statues in this very small area - some of them are still originals. My favorites are Perseus (by Cellini) and The Rape (Abduction) of the Sabine Women (by Giambologna). Look around the statue and see how one of the man's hands makes a groove in the woman's buttocks ...

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.
