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.

After several flights of steps up the hillside, you come to the Piazzale Michaelangelo which provides you stunning views across Florence. Amazing to experience this in the height of summer with the orange tiled rooftops and winding rivers far down below. There are refreshments available....More

Just outside the ancient walls of Florence, Viale
Michelangiolo starts. It is a winding road rimmed by
wonderful poplars and holm oaks. The long ascent opens
up to the most beautiful and famous panoramic
viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an
elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and
breathtaking view of the entire city from above.
