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.

Our hotel recommended going there for the best view of the city. It’s a good workout going up the hill and stairs , but worth it at the top. Really nice view of the city!

Lots of tourists but beautiful view :) musicians playing music, and great little vendors selling different Italian souvenirs. Definitely visit this spot if you’re in Florence.

Definitely worth a visit. Catch a bus from the train station up to Piazzale Michelangelo and enjoy a sunset picnic on the steps. Beautiful views over Florence and Ponte Vecchio bridge.

You can get a bottle of wine for 8 Euros at the nearby stand and sit and relax with your girl looking at all the amazing view. We also walked up there and it was an easy walk.

From this place, after you climb some steep slopes and stairs you will see the beautiful panorama of Florence. From the cathedral to the Pallazzo Vecchio and also the surrounding hills. This place is great both at night or day.

Do visit this specially via stairs for amazing sunset views. The place turns into an amazing marketplace in the evening.

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.
