This is Just one statue which is part of a major display of statues in the Piazza della Signoria. At least it is possible to see these works of art without queuing for hours!

On the Piazza Signorina, in the Loggia de Lanzi there are several statues. One of them is the Perseus one. It is just fabulos, you should spend some minutes to watch it.

In the square outside of the museum is the Perseus statue showing the head of Medusa. This is a good area with shopping and food. Museum is no charge.

Among the great and large sculptures on display in the Loggia is Perseus by Cellini, under the left arch. Perseus is the only piece in the Loggia that is sculpted in dark bronze, so there is no mistaking it. And it is striking on sight...More
