Situated off the Piazza della Signoria, this covered loggia is filled with a dozen or so statues by legendary sculptures such as Cellini and Giambologna. Love the marble Medici lions lining the entrance stairs. The number of visitors allowed to enter the loggia is restricted by a couple of guards to keep the sculptures safe from crowds and to keep visitors from sitting or crossing into the chained-off areas.

In the Piazza of the Signoria everyone looks at the Palazzo or at the copy of the David. In my opinion the real masterpiece is just close to the palazzo...it is a open air museum. The logg structure is very nice as architecture but it is amazing what there is inside. Take the time to see the statues. Unfortunately it is close to PalazzoVecchio that the tourists will no give you the time to admire the statues but please do. Personally it is one of the best spots in Firenze

I didn't know this place existed. I was just walking down the street and came upon it. At first I thought it was cheap, fake statues or even some street performers. Nope, these are the real deal. Right there in front of my was Perseus, the same Perseus that I had seen for thirty-five years on the cover of my Mythology by Edith Hamilton book. I was just dumbstruck looking around at the beautiful works of art sitting outside. Definitely worth a visit.

This is a great display of some famous statues. Perseus with the head of Medusa is here and The Rape of a Sabine Woman (the original) is also here among others. Entry is free. It is a popular area, so going early in the morning is best to avoid large crowds. This is in the Piazza della Signoria in front of Palazzo Vecchio.

The awesome Loggia dei Lanzi is a sculpture gallery in Piazza della Signoria and dates back to the 14th century.
With its round arches, the Loggia is a retrospective of classical antiquity.
The arcaded gallery is named after the lanzichenecchi (lansknechts), the Swiss bodyguards of Cosimo I.
The gallery is freely accessible day and night.

This collection of outdoor statues in one of Florence's busiest centres is worth a browse. The statues accompanied by their titles and names of artists make for a very unusual but pleasant artistic experience. Everything from Perseus to Hercules can be seen in sculpted form here.

Loggia dei Lanzi with its wonderful Renaissance statues and the copy of “Judith and Holofernes” by Donatello looked surprisingly tranquil in December rain and wasn’t busy at all. Very unusual for this iconic spot in Florence. Beautiful statues by Giambologna and Benvenuto Cellini and graceful arches of the arcade add so much beauty to the ensemble of legendary Piazza della Signoria.

Florence is a living work of art, never more so than walking through Piazza della Signoria, past the Loggia. The word 'masterpiece' could have been coined for Cellini's Perseus. Just love the sculpture(s). Look forward to seeing Cosimo restored.

I consider this area of the Piazza della Signoria as the most peaceful site in Florence surrounded by a dozen of huge statues of Greek Origins. The Loggia Dei Lanzi is a mesmerising area for tourists interested in history. I strongly suggest that one visit this area, even just take a small look from outside. Strangely, it has opening and closing hours so get there throughout the day to view the statues up close.

It is a unique example of an open-air sculpture gallery with Renaissance art. Close to Piazza della Signoria and the Uffizi Gallery, and it features beautiful sculptures made by Renaissance artist like Giambologna and Benvenuto Cellini.
The Loggia was built in 14th century, to house public ceremonies of the Florentine Republic. Many beautiful sculptures grace this gallery such as - Perseus with the head of Medusa, Rape of the Sabine Women, On the right wall there is a Latin inscription from 18th century, commemorating the change of the Florentine calendar. A must see while heading towards Piazza della Signoria/ Uffizi Gallery.
