How to admire the sculpture on Piazza della Signoria in Florence
On the Piazza della Signoria copies of famous sculptures are arranged. You can not only take pictures with them, but also touch, and feel every detail of the great works of art. By the way, one of sculptures is original - "Perseus with the head of Medusa" - the work of Cellini.

How to do?

1. Go to the Piazza della Signoria, where a large number of copies of famous sculptures are installed.
2. It's not forbidden to touch sculptures :-)
3. Take photos, make selfie.
4. Find the stone hidden behind the sculpture "Hercules, who defeated Kakusa" Bandinelli. It depicts a human profile, which, according to legend, was carved by Michelangelo.
