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 came here at sunset and it was gorgeous. As the sun sets all the buildings get lit up and there is a very romantic atmosphere. You can take a 12 bus and it drops you off right in front. The only downsides I found...More

This is a definite must do for the best views of Florence. The walk up to the piazza looks worse than what it actually is.

I took a good walk along the river Arno, next to the statue of Michelagelo. Down from the road and up there are many stairs, but it's a beautiful scenery and stunning views of all of Florence from there.

I always make a point of climbing up to this viewpoint. Stunning views of Florence. A good cafe on the lower level too.

This place offers the BEST views of Florence.. So, worth the time and energy it takes to walk up to see Florence from a higher vantage point. Plus, it is quite large, so plenty of room to enjoy the views and take great photos without...More

Visiting this Piazza is a must when one is in Florence and the breath-taking view from there makes you forget the trip to go there. When one arrives here he should not miss the nearby San Miniato al Monte.

I treated with some scepticism the prospect of sitting in a glorified car park one afternoon in April. I was wrong to be. Yes, it is little more than a big car park. Yes, it is very busy. Yes it is up quite a steep...More

This Piazzale is SO worth the walk! If offers panoramic, stunning views of the entire city of Florence, including the Duomo and Ponte Vecchio! WOW!

Go early in the morning and then watch the city light up. Wonderful! I had an unobstructed view to myself at 8 am! So peaceful!!! Uh oh, maybe not after I pass on this advice!

Took awhile to wind our way up the hill! View of Florence is fabulous and the restaurant above the Piazzale is lovely.
