Art. Art everywhere. Mar 04, 2007
Piazza della Signoria is the central square of Florence. Located next to the Duomo (Cathedral) and the Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge) is a meeting point for tourists and even Florentines.

The central building is the Palazzo Vecchio (City Hall). It is kind of a fortress and is one of the most impressive Town Hall buildings in Italy. Originally it was called Palazzo della Signoria. This is the reason of the name of the square.

There are many wonderful statues in this square. In every direction we see, we can see art. Art everywhere. This is Florence.

The Fountain of Neptune, a copy of the Michelangelo’s David, Perseus with the Head of Medusa, Hercules and Cacus are only some of the statues located in this square…

Oh! And everybody that visits Florence MUST try a delicious ice cream in here…

Wonderful Open-air Museum - Piazza della Signora Jun 21, 2006
This is an L-shaped square located in front of the Palazzo Vecchio. It's considered the point of origin of the history of the Florentine Republic. It's the meeting place of locals as well as numerous tourists.

It's surrounded by amazing buildings like: Palazzo Vecchio, the Loggia della Signoria, the Uffizi Gallery, the Palace of the Tribunale della Mercanzia (now Agriculture office) and the Uguccioni Palace.

Here you can find master art pieces every direction you look at. For example:

-A copy of the David by Michelangelo (original is kept at the Gallery of the Academy of Fine Arts).

-The Fountain of Neptune by Bartolomeo Ammannati.

-Judith and Holofernes by Donatello

-Hercules and Cacus by Bandinelli

-The Rape of the Sabine Women by Giambologna

-Perseus with the Head of Medusa by Cellini

It's a MUST visiting this splendid open-air museum.
