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.

Awesome views

Go at as the sun begins to set and prepare to be mesmerized by the view. Easy cab ride from downtown, really glad we went.

Lively walk from where we stayed but on the quieter side of Florence. Couple this with a visit to Basilica of San Miniato al Monte. Great views over the whole city.

I went up there with Segway. It was easy to get up and a really fast way of seeing the city. You really have to go up there!

Taxing walk uphill....loads of steps, but places to stop. The piazzale is well worth a visit. Great views and paranarma. Best views in Florence. Places to get refreshments. There are buses, but we didn't see them till afterwards!

This is a lovely place to spend your morning or evening. The view is absolutely amazing. But what we enjoyed was the way we reached there. We din't took the regular route, that too easy and not so interesting. Take any lane going east and then use your direction sense to reach the place. It will be a great experience... More

You must visit this place before you leave Firenze. Breath taking views. Take the bus or walk up and stay a while to be inspired.

Well worth either the trek up to the top or the 'faff' of taking the bus, although the first bus driver was helpful in telling us to get off his 23 bus and told us the cross the road and catch another one to take us to the top, stay on until you reach the very top (Piazzale), we got... More

It's a long and strenous way up if you are walking, you could also take the bus but the workout was good! Make sure to bring some comfty shoees though! At the very top you will get to see a replica of Michelangelo's David and a huge terrace/piazza with an awesome view of the city and if you can make... More
