It’s in the centre of town and it’s a pretty cool statue. I liked it. The statue of David just opposite is only a replica but stands in the original location. There are a bunch of other statues nearby also.

Our guide Klaas told the exiting story of the making of the bronze. The artist had to melt his cutlery to melt enough bronze. Than it got so hot that he burned down his house. Even if half of this story is true than it...More

Interesting area, but like Pisa the professional pick-pockets are active and will try to 'lift' anything of value, anti-slash Pac-Safe camera straps worn diagonally are required!

This statue, as well as other statue in the Loggia are not of the angelic type of statues that are common in Italy. The Perseus is shown holding the head of Medusa. Other statues in this collection are associated with other violent events (rape).

This status attracts you in midst of so many sculptures... A bit gory but with amazing details keep you engrossed.

The Perseus Statue stands out in the Loggia, not only for its contract colour being one of only a few Bronze statues to be found in Florence, but also for the charming beheaded conquest he is holding up.

This statue is located on the Piazza della Signora in a separate section with other statues. The statues are standing outside and are generally a beautiful sight. This statue is the most beautiful and impressive with Perseus and a severed head.

This stature brought to life (sort of ) the Greek mythological tales I read as a child. Perseus cuts off the head of Medusa . Terrible story but the most beautiful statue. Read the story before you go, stare in wonder at this Cellini masterpiece...More

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
