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.

“Michelangelo lookout Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

We ended our day at this lookout. Yet another replica of David. Just a beautiful spot to take photos of Florence and the sun setting over Florence.!!!! The sun set over the bridges and river with the skyline is magnifisant!!! I recommend that you visit this lookout in time for sunset. Make sure you know the time when the last public bus goes by if this is your means of transport. There are no better way to end a visit to Florence than taking memorable photo moments at this lookout.

“Florance panorama”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

This square gives you a top view of Florence and is really a very good spot for panoramic photographs. It also had a less-perfect version of Michelangelo's David. So if you won't have time to see the one in the museum, you'll get a good idea on what the statue is about :)

“Amazing view for Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

My advice is to keep this site for the afternoon. After a long walk in Florence, it's nice to end your day relaxing on the stairs and watching Florence from above.

“Excellent view of Florence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Excellent scenic overview of all of Florence. FREE PARKING. You do have to deal with the statue and all of the souvenirs dealing with a certain body part however. Could have done without all of that, especially with small children. But the view, night or day, is spectacular and worth seeing once.
