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 went up to the Piazzale on our last evening in Florence and got some terrific panoramic views of the city all lit up. Such a beautiful way to end our week in Florence.

We went here first thing to view the whole city and the old Roman wall encircling it with our Eco Green tour (and best tour guide Lucca). it is amazing but I'd suggest taking the tour cart up there as it's a BIG hike up!

We came late in the afternoon and watched the sunset. It was BEAUTIFUL! My 3 year old daughter had a blast running around and listening to the musicians.

Went thre in the evening to get good city views at night. Always a good place to go to get overall views of the city, and enjoy some of the buildings from a distance, rather than up-close. A must visit during your trip.

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
