Piazza Della Signoria - Review

This 13th century square’s proximity to the Palazzo Vecchio and the Uffizi Palace made it one of the most important locations in the city. It was first owned by the Uberti family, who, when expelled from the city, saw their properties razed. Florentines have historically gathered at the square to hear the addresses by the nobles or witness important political events.

Even before the time of the Florentine Dukes, the square was central to an ancient Roman town – Florentia – and had a theatre, Roman baths and textiles dyeing workshop. In the 1980s, even a Neolithic site was found here.

Impressively statue-ed, the square is where Michelangelo’s David originally stood, before being moved in the 18th century. Today, a replica stands here. Also famous is the Fountain of Neptune, the Hercules sculpted by Baccio Bandinelli, the equestrian statue of Cosimo I de' Medici by Giambologna, and a replica of the Marzocco, a lion statue sculpted by Donatello. There are more statues in the nearby Loggia del Lanzi.

Today, the sidewalks of the square are lined with many cafes, making it an ideal spot to take a break and people watch before setting off on your next itinerary item.

Piazza Della Signoria, Florence Reviews

  • Absolutely a must see. Florence is the most amazing city with an unbelievable amount of sculpture and history everywhere you look. Enjoy a night time concert and bring some wine, cheese. and bread. If you get the chance, the flea market is where you will find everything you need at crazy prices. The food is great, and of course, the incredible wines speak for themselves.

  • This is the main square in the city of Florence....their city hall. There are some cool sites to see, replicas of statues, etc. There are also lots of restaurants to sit and relax, although they can be pricey because of their location. This is also where you would pick up your Firenzia card, which is highly recommended as it includes unlimited attraction passes in Florence + access to public transportation service.

  • Loved the history of this piazza. The sculptures are amazing, Perseus my personal favourite. Great place to just sit and take it all in.

  • They are keen on you drinking.... Otherwise you can see their face changing once you say no.... Food is ok not impressive but the location is amazing, but you differently feel it's more commercialized than specialized restaurant. However the service is fast. It all depends on what you want.

  • One of many places to take a shot in Florence It's lively and elegant and surrounded by beautiful building's elements. Crown people here sometimes, beware your belonging all the time. Anyway it's worth to walk around, atmosphere and surroundings are lovely.
