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.

As we were based in Florence for a couple of days, we decided to walk leisurely to the hill where Piazzale Michelangelo is located from the center of Florence instead of finding the right bus to get there. It was very warm at the end of June, shorts and a light shirt will do. It was probably a 45 min... More

Fantastic views of the city and the Duomo from the south side of the city. In summer it can be very hot here, so bring a hat. There are a couple of restaurant/ bars for a cooling drink. Toilet facilities are € 2.

The most breathtaking spot in Florence! It's a bit of a hike yo reach the top, but so worth the effort. Take a bottle of wine with you to enjoy, or grab a glass at the top. Spectacular views of Florence from every direction.

Beautiful views of Florence. A tough hike in 100 degree F heat but worth it. Easier for those who drive or take tour busses. Treat yourself to a Gelati on the way down.

Taxi to the top and walk back. It is so worth it. The views are amazing and if you are any kind of photographer the panoramic is awesome. The rose gardens on the downward journey were in full bloom and they alone worth a look.

I went in summer and the heat was unbearable in the afternoon (due to a heat wave). Hence, I decided to go there in the morning and reached there at around 7. I would recommend going early in the morning so that the air is still cool and the walk up is comfortable. The view there is amazing - you... More

If you want classic postcard type photos of the city, this is the place to come and get them. We were also able to have breakfast at the restaurant there. Go early in the morning to avoid all,of the tour buses.
