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.

Amazing full panoramic views across the city and round towards the hills and valleys dotted with stunning architectural mansions. Was at its best at sunset - the glow was like a super HD postcard.

Visited on our last morning with little time to spare so we took a taxi to the top. The views were spectacular. The walk down was very quick and faster than a taxi.

It’s a bit of a walk out of the city centre but totally worth it. Quite a pull up to the piazza too! Great views over a stunningly beautiful city.

This is definitely worth a visit. It is up a steep hill and about 150 steps up (I may have counted) but once you get to the top the views of Florence are outstanding. On a clear day you can see for miles and it...More

Strolled up here after a taxi mans recommendation and it was unreal. Definitely a spot for watching the sunset from!

Piazzale Michelangelo offers beautiful views of the city. Too bad the place is marred with tourist-trap crappy gift sellers and one of the times we were there, a really loud musician who was making us weep far more than his guitar. Must stop point though...More

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
