Technically named "La Loggia dei Lanzi" the lodge is a large outdoor art gallery that also offers a place for travelers to rest their feet in the shade. Built in the late middle ages, the Loggia later became home to some of the greatest sculptures created during the Renaissance. Notable works in the loggia include Perseus with the head of the Medusa by Cellini. The Loggia is located in Piazza della Signoria next to the magnificent Medici castle, the Palazzo Vecchio. Since at least the 1300s this area has been the geographic, political and social heart of Florence. Today, it’s just an added bonus that this wonder place is free for everyone to enjoy.
