This 19th century piazza has undoubtedly the best panoramic view of Florence. The square is decorated with copies of Michelangelo's sculptures, but it's the view people come here to see.

Great view and make sure you visit the cemetery above it and also stop at the garden halfway. In the summer since the plaza is exposed it can get really hot so bring a hat or an umbrella if you don’t want to be scorched.

Awesome views of the city from here, with a replica of David gazing out at Florence. Good selection of vendors and street artists. Strongly recommend you take a city bus of the Hop On/Hop Off tour bus to get up here.

An amazing vista. You have the whole of Florence spread out before you. There is a lively restaurant and cafe there too if you want to prolong your visit as we did. Don't miss this one!

We accessed this stunning viewpoint via Bus 12 from Porta Romana near the Boboli Gardens. When we arrived at the viewpoint at the piazza there was a modest crowd. Despite the slightly hazy skies we had a stunning view overlooking all the sites of Florence....More

A long climb but worth it. We walked across the river, and up, up and up for this view. It was really gorgeous with the city laid out before you. A tough climb up, but definitely worth it.

You can walk (hike) to it, take a bus, cab, or bike to the piazelle. It is worth it! The view is spectacular from here, and it's FREE! A must if you are in Florence!

Panoramic view of Florence and the Ponte Vecchio. Take bus 12 or 13 (ATAF is the bus line you should be able to find the schedules online). There are also beautiful gardens nearby.

If you go to Florence... you MUST go up to the Piazzale. The view is amazing. We stood up there for an hour just enjoying the view. This cannot be missed.

If you go to Florence, the piazzale Michelangelo, although also very crowded, is a definite must. Just beware of pickpockets

Yes can sit outside and drink wines. trouble always finds its way around but just be aware! walked nearly everywhere. from the bridge to top of the piazza about 30-45mins. I hope you enjoy it all in firenza.
