The reviews of the view are correct. We strolled up for some bubbles at sunset. The location is romantic, the view at sunset was amazing, and the service was spot on.

Yes, you get a view from the bus, but get off and walk to the railing across the parking lot. Take photos, selfies", and let your eyes drink in the amazing view of Florence.

Guide books and websites said this was a great view across the city and they are spot on. I've taken some good photos taking in 4 or more bridges across the river. It's not far to walk from Ponte Vecchio - about 20 mins total up to the top - but be prepared for the long and steep flight of... More

It is quite a nice hike in the spring when all the flowers are in bloom across the Arno and up the hill to this plaza where you can sit for hour admiring the view. Perfect picture spot for the amateur photographer. I have enlarged and framed mine as a gift for my daughter who lives abroad there for 6... More

You must go to see this piazza. This is where you get a full view of the city Firenze. There are tour buses that take you up there as well as around the city. Or you can just take the steps and enjoy the climb. There are many ways up and down so be adventurous. They sell drinks and food... More

If you are leaving Florence within one hour, spend most of this hour here, to enjoy an amazing beautiful view of the whole city. If you luckily have more days to spend in the city of Dante Alighieri, start and end your experience here for the same reason. I suggest you to come by bus from Santa Maria Novella, the... More

I liked the place because you get to see Florence and the view is really amazing! Yet there are just few food stores and activities, mainly for the view or just to chill. And you have to take the bus to go there from the heart of Florence.

The view from Piazza Michelangelo is the best in all of Florence. Take your time, pictures and enjoy lunch in Loggia

Very touristy spot for good reason. We went on Sunday after the morning mass at Chisea di San Miniato on Palm Sunday. It's just down the hill a short walk. There were classic cars and scooters on display and the statue of Michelangelo's David. It's not the real one but what the heck.
