Perseus Statue is a beautiful statue of Perseus with the Medusa. It is situated in Plaza Signioria, the main square of Florence. There are no admission charges and one can view the statues up close. There are other copies of statues in the historic square....More

I found this and the other statues fascinating but they lacked any interesting information. However they are totally free to visit so shouldn't grumble.

It’s in the centre of town and it’s a pretty cool statue. I liked it. The statue of David just opposite is only a replica but stands in the original location. There are a bunch of other statues nearby also.

Our guide Klaas told the exiting story of the making of the bronze. The artist had to melt his cutlery to melt enough bronze. Than it got so hot that he burned down his house. Even if half of this story is true than it...More

Interesting area, but like Pisa the professional pick-pockets are active and will try to 'lift' anything of value, anti-slash Pac-Safe camera straps worn diagonally are required!

This statue, as well as other statue in the Loggia are not of the angelic type of statues that are common in Italy. The Perseus is shown holding the head of Medusa. Other statues in this collection are associated with other violent events (rape).

This status attracts you in midst of so many sculptures... A bit gory but with amazing details keep you engrossed.

The Perseus Statue stands out in the Loggia, not only for its contract colour being one of only a few Bronze statues to be found in Florence, but also for the charming beheaded conquest he is holding up.

This statue is located on the Piazza della Signora in a separate section with other statues. The statues are standing outside and are generally a beautiful sight. This statue is the most beautiful and impressive with Perseus and a severed head.
