Piazza della Signoria is named after the 14th century Palazzo della Signoria (today is known as Palazzo Vecchio - the “Old Palace”) that dominates the spacious square.
This square is a perfect example of why many refer to Florence as an outdoor museum.
On the corner close to Palazzo Vecchio is Loggia dei Lanzi, a covered terrace recognized by its wide arches and its open-air exhibition of fabulous bronze and marble sculptures depicting classical and mythological themes.

Ponte Vecchio
Translating to “Old Bridge”, Ponte Vecchio is a medieval stone arch bridge that spans the Arno River.
Initially occupied with butcher shops, nowadays you’ll find it filled with upscale jewelry shops, artists, and souvenir vendors. An interesting aspect about this bridge is Vasari’s Corridor, an enclosed passageway commissioned by Cosimo I de’Medici to connect Palazzo Vecchio (Florence’s Town Hall) with Palazzo Pitti (the private residence of the Medici family).
