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.

If you have the time and then spend an evening here. Super views of the city. After the crowded city, the open space makes for a nice break. If you have the time there are super restaurants within walking distance down the hill. We got...More

One of those places you just have to go when you go to Florence, lovely views of the Duomo and the city.

Bring your camera here to take wonderful pictures over looking the Arno River and the City of Florence. It can get busy with tourists, however it is a large area and you will find that perfect spot for a wonderful photo!

We walked there at 7:30 after dinner and waited for about 1 hour to see the sunset, sitting on the stairs, where at around 8 no free spot was available anymore. For an impression on the view, see the photo below.

Title says it all really. We went there once during the day and got some great pictures of the city and once at night which was even busier. You probably won't spend more that 10 minutes here.

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.

Too far to walk - you could take a city bus Number 12 bus is the one that loops up to the park and back. We took it up, stayed for awhile and caught the bus back down to the city. Cost around 2 euros for seniors
