    Charming by day but even more lit up at night. Collects many important sculptures which in my opinion should be placed somewhere more protected inside and replaced with copies. ES: rape of the Sabine women, Perseus and Medusa, Hercules and the Centaur ... Above the porch is the rooftop terrace of the Uffizi.

    Little arcade exhibit the best sculpture in the world, almost every aircraft will sit a few hours to enjoy the feeling. Take a picture with the Lions, look up the Perseus, look up the Centaur, feeling master's work is so superb.

    Florence is full of charms and this is just one of them. I intend to go back and spend ten days there. The statues are fantastic. But I never go in August that is too hot and too crowded.

  • Beautiful statues that are not hidden behind a paywall or long queues associated with museums. Gorgeous, must see.
  • The second place i came across on my visit. As someone who plays the assassins creed franchise it was heartwarming to see these buildings in person, the parade usually ends here and is great to watch
  • Watch out for pick pockets. It's nice to see nice statues in the open area for free.
  • Atmospheric introduction to classical Florence full of elegance and opulence! Was there in the evening as well as during a drizzle, quite awesome. As with most places with tourists, be on your guard for your personal belongings here.
  • One look at the gore hanging off Medusa's head and you know it's a masterpiece.

Where to stay in Florence

Variety is not a problem when deciding where to stay in Florence. The compact town center is packed with hotels, hostels, and small inns. The drawback of this upmarket central area is that even family-run B&Bs often cost as much as luxury hotels. For more affordable lodgings, explore the area outside the tourist-driven city center. Staying in one of the city's residential neighborhoods allows you to immerse yourself in the daily life of local Florentines. B&Bs and hotels outside the center offer private parking and spacious rooms, all within walking distance of the main tourist sites.
