Owner description: 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.

“Gorgeous panoramic view of Florence”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

We took a tour group up here so we didn't have to worry about finding transportation on our own, which would have been a big headache. The views from the top truly are stunning and worth a photo or two, but otherwise there isn't a whole lot to occupy your time. If you are booking a tour that visits this spot, great, but if not, I wouldn't go out of your way to make it up here.

“Panoramic view of Florence”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

This scenic overlook gives a panoramic view of Florence from a high point across the Arno river. It's not really walkable from the historic center. Best to go with a tour that combines this with other sites.

“Worthwhile hike”
Reviewed 29 April 2012

Even at dusk we started to break a sweat hiking up to the top of the hill. The view was spectacular! Unfortunately the rose gardens were closed at this time, but we spent a good half hour taking in the city. There were tons of other tourists there, and there were some stalls to buy drinks or snacks for not too much of a markup. I suggest bringing water for the walk up.
