  • I was very excited to see this landmark but very disappointed to learn it was recently vandalized and under restoration construction until December 2018. I will be looking forward to its unveiling!  more »
  • I went to 8/2017. Located in Piazza della Signoria and as is a big fountain. Unfortunately I went under renovation in fence, I didn't see the whole picture. I saw great Neptune's statue and peek through the fence of the construction.

  • In my opinion is one of the world's most beautiful fountains worth seeing. You cannot miss it! I had the good fortune of being able to admire at the crack of dawn when there is none yet, then in the coming and going of turisti...ma always lovely.

  • Cannot believe the amount of people here confusing Stoldo Lorenzi's 'Fountain of the Fork' in the Boboli Gardens with Bartolomeo Ammannati's Fountain of Neptune at Piazza della Signoria. The latter is a collossal marble Neptune based upon Cosimo I de Medici and reflects the Florentine's 16th century naval prowess. It is completely free since it is in a public space, and is always open for the same reason. There are no ducks to feed, maybe the odd pigeon though, but the fountain keeps good comany in the beautiful piazza with the likes of Bandinelli's Hercules and Cellini's Perseus with the head of Medusa (also free). The reason people commenting earlier expected something bigger is because they were looking at a completely different fountain.
  • Cool, seating around this area is great, closed at 730pm EXACTLY, so make sure you have enough time to walk around and make a small picnic.
  • I thought I was going to see the same Statue of Neptune from the pictures but it's just a dirty pond with a very rough ugly statue different from the one in the square. Overgrown with grass. Not at all impressive. I really want my money back.
  • Nice quiet spot to watch the ducks and rest on a bench.
  • Was expecting something a bit more impressive, at least bigger :)
