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.

Really nice views from there! I suggest getting the nose scenic route to get up the hills, close to Boboli gardens. Would definitely go back!

Stunning views of Florence. Lots of stairs to get there but so worth it. We actually went there twice. We found the back way up. A little easier climb. Do not miss the stunning rose gardens just below the Piazzale. Free!!!!! Great views and in...More

About a 2k walk from town but worth it in the sunshine for the wonderful views. Plenty of places at the top to get a drink ... you’ll need it after the stair climb. The walk down is far gentler :-)

It is totally worth the 20 min hike up here. The view over the city is lovely. Grab a drink. Even better head up to the chiesa San Salvatore al Monte. There is less people and probably even better view.

Its all about the view. Go and stay through sunset. Amazing views of the city, somewhat crowded, but everyone enjoying themselves.

What can you not say about the view of Florence from here - it would have been nice to be on our own, it was busy, it has kiosks selling tat, it is a tourist trap. It is a fantastic view of Florence!

Replica of DAVID Statute, but best reason to come here is for the great Florence city view at night. Steep hike up hills but not too bad. Worth the effort...

Had a nice hike to the Piazzale Michelangelo and found a lovely restaurant that had an outside deck to look back over Florence. Great lemon drops!!
