  • Nice space architectural in an of the faces of the square of the lordship, charged of statues and busts. Meters of the Palace Vecchio and the Uffizi Gallery. Take a few pictures and keep walking!

  • Very expressive sculptures, my best was Hercules fighting the Centaur for the details in the muscles, twists, facial expressions & veins. Great art.
  • Being able to see some of the most beautiful art in the world for free is the stuff my dreams are made of, and here at Loggia dei Lanzi situated in Piazza della Signoria it comes true. The architectural design of the open air 'gallery' that shelters these gorgeous statues also has its own significance that might interest some apart from the statues it houses. I do believe that reading up on the Loggia dei Lanzi will make your trip to seeing this landmark in Florence even more special. On one of the occasions I visited this place an auction was being held amongst the statues, under the shelter! Take care of your belongings as this whole place is most likely to be very crowded with people, right up until late at night especially in the summer when everything is open until late including the Palazzo Vecchio (although probably less so with most tour groups having left already), but any photos you may want of the statues (free to take to your heart's content but don't be an idiot and try to touch these priceless works of art and ruin it for everyone else- the amount of times fingers on these statues have had to be restored is unreasonably and upsettingly high) should be clean and clear of fellow tourist faces as they are mounted high on pedestals.
  • I liked Cellini's sculpture the Most..Very good place to visit and that too Free ! ..Without any Ticket..
  • I guess you will pass this place at some point, so I can recommend to check out the statues!
  • Despite being a gothic building has round arches, this probably was an inspiration to Filippo Brunelleschi for the design of the first Renaissance building, the Spedale degli Innocenti
