This is without a doubt the highlight of Piazza Della Signoria, one of the most beautiful statues I have ever seen in a public square

Neptune stares out into the square with a stern, commanding look and his sea nymphs cavort around him. Very macho and they seem popular with the tourists.

This is a nice quick break on your Florence walking tour. Sometimes it is nice to relax and just "tick off" one thing on your to do-list. After a few hours in Accademic Gallery, a quick peak at the Neptune fountain felt fine!

We were on a walking tour of Florence and learned about the history of all these statues and why they were built. It is definitely worth seeing and learning about the history of Florence.

Use a handheld audio guide to explore Florence, and make your way around a preset route, put together by a local expert guide. The innovative ‘audiopen’ includes a touch-screen map, which allows you to wander the city streets and learn about its sights as you go. Check out Palazzo Pitti, Florence Duomo, the Church of San Lorenze and Brunelleschi’s Dome... More

This is a great fountain. However, with all of the other statues in the square, it does not stand out like it should. Very beautiful statue though.

The sculpture of Neptune is beautiful. It is located in the same square as the famous sculptures such as the rape of the Sabine women. There is so much art history here without people standing in the way of your view for free.

We visited the Piazza della Signoria during the day as well as in the evening. I took photos of some of the statues in natural light but the Fountain of Neptune was especially beautiful at night.

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.
