The beating heart of the city's political life since the 14th century, photogenic Piazza della Signoria is lined by modern cafes and packed with Renaissance sculptures. This lively L-shaped square is named after the massive Romanesque fortress-palace that overlooks it. A favorite meeting place of Florentines, the square is like an open-air museum of art with its numerous statues, including a copy of Michelangelo's sculpture of David. An ornate fountain features a large figure of Neptune, the Roman god of the sea. The square serves as a gateway to the Uffizi Gallery, which displays more of the city's art.

Piazza della Signoria is a great place to take some time, have a spritz, and do some people watching. Get immerssed in history.

This piazza was a treat. There are lots of statues to look at, even a replica of David. There are also a lot of performers and people that gather here, but with that brings the peddlers trying to sell you something. Nevertheless, I would definitely see this place again if I ever return.
Piazza della Signoria is a nice piazza where there is a place with amazing old statues for the public to see. As well as a museum to visit. It's very lively and you can find a lot of tourists.
Great spot to spend some time in Florence, lots to see. Copy of David outside and numerous other statues one extra special if you know what to look for, clue its bronze! Lots of restaurants, some expensive but walk a few streets away and find something reasonable.
Amazing sculptures and arts. ...The beauty and history of this place is in tact inside ...Their is also a refreshment for everybody that can enjoy the food specially the places around this area.
Nice location to spend some time and enjoy the view. During the more touristic season there are a lot of tourists walking by. Where there are tourists, there are people to sell something to these tourists, so that can be a little annoying at some times.
