Palazzo Vecchio

The civic nucleus of Florence is Piazza della Signoria, and dominating over it stands the Palazzo Vecchio, the old palace.

You have to go down a side street to get a picture of the building from top to bottom. Who says that skyscrapers weren't invented until the Twentieth Century?

Michelangelo sculpted his renowned David for the spot next to the door. A copy stands in its place.

The Vasari Bridge connects the Palazzo Vecchio with the Uffizi. This begins the Vasari Corridor, which proceeds across the river and ends at Palazzo Pitti, another Medici palace.
