Michelangelo's David in front of Palazzo Vecchio

posted on 14th of february, 2012

Piazza della Signoria has been the political center of Florence, Italy for centuries. Today, it is a lively spot with many restaurants, bars and ice cream shops - a must-see on your Italy vacation. In front of Palazzo Vecchio (The Old Palace) one finds a copy of the famous David by Michelangelo, the Marzocco by Donatello and the Neptune Fountain.

The entrance to the Uffizi Gallery is just off the square. In the area covered by the Loggia dei Lanzi there are numerous statues, including Cellini's bronze Perseus. Next to the Neptune Fountain is an equestrian statue of Grand Duke Cosimo I of the Medici.

In the warmer months, visitors can go on a romantic carriage ride through Florence, beginning in Piazza della Signoria. At night, locals and visitors alike follow the promenade along Via dei Calzaiuoli, a lively shopping street that connects Piazza della Signoria with the Duomo of Florence.

The copy of Michelangelo's David in front of Palazzo Vecchio in the Florentine square Piazza Signoria is located outdoors and can be seen 24 hours a day.
There is another copy of David in Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence. To see the original statue, you can visit Galleria dell'Accademia in Florence.

A few years ago I was in Florence with my family. At that time I only had a very cheap digital camera. Next time I will be "fully" equipped!
