The castle in the Palazzo Vecchio is amazing in that it was constructed over 400 years ago and is still in use. The copy of the DAVID in the Palazzo is really a pleasure to view.

I believe it was the best part of the trip, It wasn't huge, it wasn't too small, not too much time spending inside, it was a perfect... More

I visited here a year ago and I thought of going to see this place as it is an old building that has a good history from being a prison at some point in the past.

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood 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.
