Amazing buildings and sculpture

Apart from too many tourists with selfie sticks we enjoyed the buildings and sculptures. It was really packed in February, heaven knows what it would be like in the summer!

The Piazza is quite large with plenty of statues around, especially under the portico opposite the palazzo. Several restaurants around, plus I found a gelateria, which featured in the "48 hour tourist" with Rebel Wilson, which aired while I was on holiday. I'm glad I recorded it!

This nice square has copies of many of the great statues by the masters. One that caught my attention was the amazing fountain.

An amazing space surrounded by the town hall fountain and local designer stores. Great place just to sit and gather your thoughts watch the world go by and breath in the skill and beauty of the statues all around you

Next to the cathedral is this lovely big square with a fountain and sculptures well worth seeing. Sitting in the square people watching while enjoying an exorbitantly priced drink and cover charge can be very pleasant if you have the cash to spare.

Really interesting piazza with impressive statues - including David replica. Very busy. Horse drawn tours of the area can be taken from here- highly recommended to get a first glimpse of all the things you need to visit. Outside restaurants also offer excellent brunch/ lunch/ afternoon snack to take in the view.

Another Piazza, but still very interesting and a replica of David here too. Beautiful old buildings and statues - makes us realize how we don't have very much in the way of history.

The centre of medieval Florence. Apart from the obvious sites, have a look at the Gucci museum, very interesting in itself but also remember that this is the building of the old guilds, something like the Wall Street of the 15th century. Also try not to miss the bronze plaque that shows the very spot where Savonarola explored the dichotomy... More

This is a major and popular piazza. There are many statues including a copy of the statue of David in front of the Palazzo Vecchio where the original statue stood. Other statues are in the loggia and other places in the piazza. It is very crowded with tourists but it is a must see.

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.
