So we booked this apartment because it looked very nice, was well located and had great reviews. We had no idea what the significance of piazza Della Signoria was. Piazza Della Signoria is the most historically significant piazza in Florence. It is where the seat of power since the time of the de Medici family, housing their government palace and apartments. There is a colonnade that houses a collection of their private statues outdoors for all to enjoy. And those are the originals! Only the statue of David was relocated and replaced by a copy. The location is beyond belief. Uffizi Gallery was just across the piazza and all the great shopping, dining and historical sights of Florence surround the apartment. A real wow!
