  • This loggia which is located in front of the Palais Vecchio is full of a few dozen square meters, a formidable artistic asset. An open-air museum concentrate. Beautiful statues.

  • Almost 20 years later, I returned to Florence and once again in front of the Loggia dei Lanzi I could not help but photograph the wonderful Perseo del Cellini. The Lodge is full of other statues but in front of the Perseus everything seems to disappear... even the many tourists who flock to it.

  • The Loggia is a building in Signoria Square, one of the city's attractions. The arcade building was built between 1376 and 1382. The building was intended for meetings and receptions of the Republic of Florence. The Lanzi Loggia is currently an open-air museum that houses an exhibition of sculptures from the collection of the nearby Uffizi Gallery, including : "Persei with the Head of Medusa" by Benvenuto Cellini, "The Abduction of The Sabines" and " Hercules and Centaur" Jamboloni, an ancient Roman copy of the ancient Greek sculpture "Menelaus with the Body of Patroclus," "The Abduction of Polyxena" by Pio Fedi, as well as several ancient female statues.

  • TThe area is a must see, and should not be missed. This outdoor sculpture display is covered to protect it from weather. Great place to stop and rest while walking about. There are guards that keep stupid people from climbing the art, but they are very nice, unless you are one of the stupid of course.
  • This mystery loggia has mixed with original greek and roman sculpture and imitaated works by the greatest artiest.
  • Supreme place, the Hercules and Perseus statues are masterpieces
  • Interesting, like open air museum. I honestly didn't know it's there, before arriving. Spectacular and monumental sculptures. Great to grab a piece of shade on the open square. Literally in the shadow of the Palazzo Vecchio. You won't miss much, but the dozen or so of the sculptures really remind of the antiquity of the city.
  • Mesmerizing works of art. Attention to detail is astounding. Definitely a must visit place if you're in Florence!!
