The Perseus Statue is made by Benvenuto Cellini in 1545-1554. It is a true piece of art. It is placed on Piazza della Signoria.

By the Medici palace, this statue is. A good place to visit in Florence. This can be seen for free, but beware it can be busy.

No reason not to take in this area which has many statues, along with some shopping and restaurants. Close to the Uffizi Gallery and on the way to the Ponte Vecchio, so stop and enjoy.

I found this and the other statues fascinating but they lacked any interesting information. However they are totally free to visit so shouldn't grumble.

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.
