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.

We stopped by at the Piazzale Michelangelo and enjoyed the views. There were some areas blocked off for construction, but the view was not impacted. We were on our way to the Church of San Miniato al Monte so this was a good stop on the way. I did not go up the Duomo, but I think this view is... More

We went by bus no.13 and then walked back to ponte vecchio. From up there the view is stunning with Florence and the doumo beneath you.

Not a tough walk and the best views of the city by far. A few nice little ice cream shops and restaurants on the walk. A must when visiting the city

Not the easiest to get to since there is lots of stairs but it is worth it. Stunning view! Great place to bring some food and have a picnic on a sunny afternoon.

Had a lovely walk up here, what is even better is that it's only about 15/20 minutes from the centre of the city. It's an absolutely amazing view with the city and the mountains in far distance. I was lucky enough to catch the sunset before wandering back down to into the city.

It was delightful joining hundreds of other locals and tourists as we gathered in the Piazzale to watch the sun set beautifully over Florence. You can take a taxi if you prefer, or can't walk. We walked up the hundreds of steps, stopped for a beverage, and then settled in for the view. Fantastic!

Quite a walk up a steep hill and steps but is worth it for the great views of Florence and surrounding hills.

Well worth finding your way up here as the views across the whole of Florence are just amazing. The huge statue of David is quite magnificent too.

There is no way that I can describe this, I can not find words to describe my emotion. The David status (the real one) is inside the museum.All the details . David is a masterpiece of Renaissance sculpture created between 1501 and 1504 by Michelangelo. It is a 5.17-metre (17.0 ft)[a] marble statue of a standing male nude. The statue... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Piazzale Michelangelo
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. During good weather, Piazzale Michelangelo provides visitors with a serene space surrounded by the amazing landscape, better if accompanied by a fresh gelato from a local kiosk. During night, visitors will be dazzled by the warm lights of the capital of the Renaissance. Spend a second with the silent Romanesque beauty of the Basilica of San Miniato al Monte: the one that wishes good morning and good night to Florence!
