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.

The square itself is not that attractive but the view you get of Florence is fantastic due to its elevated position. It would be a very long walk up hill so I suggest getting a number 12 or 13 bus which takes you to the...More

This is where you go for an unparalleled view over the city scape of Florence. A very young crowd gathered by the steps on the evening we went up, and the sunset was completely worth it.

A must see in Florence. If you do nothing else then at least take in this panoramic view of the city. Seems to be plenty of ways to get there. You can walk. Catch public transport. Or hop on the tourist bus.

The trek up to the Piazzale Michaelangelo is well worth it as the views of the city from up there are just spectacular. So, you will be busy 'happy snapping' pictures to add to your other souvenirs of your trip to Florence. Also, of course,...More

viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an
elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and
