To get to Piazza Michelangelo, we took the 12 bus from the train station. It was about 20 minutes. The view from the piazza is amazing and is a great photo opportunity.

The best viewpoint for this beautiful city. Even with the crowds in summer watching the sunset from up here is something special.

We hiked up to the Piazzale and were so glad we did! We started out about 10 at night and it was great exercise! The view at the top is so worth it and there were several dance clubs going strong in the vicinity.
