This loggia is an open air art gallery that is filled with renaissance and antique art. It adjoins the Uffizi gallery and fronts onto the Piazza della Signoria near the Palazzo Vecchio. It is always crowded with tourists.

Grab your camera and your reading glasses and head to the Loggia. There are signs up that explain the art and artist that I did not remember from our last visit. Such an amazing area and if you are short on time in Florence, this area will give you lots of bang for your time. Love love love this place.

What could be better than a free Art show that it could be found always open! It is located next to the Uffizi Gallery in the corner of the Pizza de la Signoria by the Palazzo Vecchio. An outdoor-terrace filled up with statues and yet free to walk up and around any time of the day you wish. The statues... More

In the Loggia we'll feel like you are visiting an open-air museum. It is located opposite to Academy of Fine Arts.

I remember these statues beyond the fence up the stairs. Now they are as in a garden of pedestal-led timelessness. A street balcony over the piazza.

This is not necessarily the first thing you will be told to see or visit in Florence (though it is centrally located, and you would have passed it anyway, most likely), but we loved looking around here. Super interestingly, there was a street artist here among the statues, pretending to be a statue, who never moved, except after you gave... More

The Loggia dei Lanzi is located at the western side of the Piazza della Signoria. The piazza is very spacious. The sculptures are magnificent. It is amazing that these statues are viewable for free.

The collection of sculptures within this area is beyond compare. There is no admission price and the crowds are relatively small (compared to other attractions). Because the sculptures are displayed opening, you can get exceptionally close to study the detail, expressions, muscle tensions and stances. I would recommend having a guide to explain more about the sculptures unless you already... More

The sculptures are the reason to visit the Loggia, which has no admission charge. They are simply unbelievable! You also get a nice view of the Piazza from this vantage point.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighborhood Profile
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.
