What a collection of art

This square holds so much amazing sculptures and history. You definitely need to go with a guide to explain what the sculptures mean to get the full benefit but a must see

It cost us €8 each to enter as we are under 25 (€10 full price) and free bag storage, what I enjoyed about it the most is that there was a very distinctive painting style throughout the rooms that I've not seen elsewhere in Italy so far, the tower closes at 4ish so if you're wanting to do that get...

Along with all the other buildings and architecture, this area is well worth your attention. We did not go inside this particular building but the surrounding area has lots to offer.

The Palazzo is well worth seeing - be prepared for a crick in the neck as a lot of the stunning decor is on the ceilings. There is information in each room in Italian and English and, as our audioguide was a dud, we relied on the boards in each room and found they gave adequate information. The audioguide problem...

This was our first visit here on our third time in Florence and I must say it was amazing. From the magnificent great hall, to the flawlessly decorated ceiling and walls, this place oozes history and intrigue. Superb!!

For those who love Art and History this castle is a must. Wonderful works painting and sculptures which are more than 400 years-old.

There is so much to see and do in Palazza Vecchio. Eat at one of many cafes, people watch, check out the sculptures. When you get tired of doing that, then you can venture into the Museo Vecchio or the Uffizi Palace

Staying in Uffizi

Neighbourhood Profile
Uffizi
Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can reach the city center, the Florence that everybody dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can experience the rare beauty of the capital of the Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio and overlooking Piazza della Signoria, up to the Loggia of the Uffizi where it is possible to fully taste the talent of the best artists who animated Florence over the centuries. When the sun goes down, there’s nothing better than a walk along the river Arno up to the ancient bridge, Ponte Vecchio. It is full of jewels and decorated by the colors captured in postcards.
