At the heart of the city, in the Piazza della Signoria is the Palazzo Vecchio, the town hall of Florence. At the entrance is a copy of Michelangelo’s David statue. To the side is Bartolomeo Ammanati’s Fountain of Neptune. Just across a lane way is the Loggia die Lanzi, filled with famous sculptures, including Benvenuto Cellini’s statue of Perseus with the Head of Medusa. Inside the Palazzo Vecchio is a treasury of frescoes, gilded ceilings and significant sculptures.
