Piazza della Signoria at Night
I love the piazzas in Florence. The beauty and history alone take your breathe away, but it only adds to the experience when you have a fantastic soundtrack in the background. In this video, you see the four of us in the Loggia dei Lanzi of the Piazza. This is a sculpture gallery that dates back to the 14th century and has my two favorite statues in Florence – The David by Michelangelo and Perseus by Cellini. (definitely check out Perseus online – seeing him hold the decapitated head of Medusa is incredible!).
We have spent every night in Florence strolling between the Ponte Vecchio and the Piazza della Signoria in search of the best street performer. You can see a photo of our favorite guitarist on the Ponte Vecchio in our Best Of Florence photos on facebook (soon to come)
