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.

“Hard work but worth it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

A lot of steps to get to the top but well worth the view of Florence. You can approach from a different direction that is not as steep but it's longer. Get a cab if you have mobility issues. It was busy up there in January but there was plenty of space. I imagine in Spring it will be heaving and difficult to get a good view.

“The Most Beautiful View Of My Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

From the Piazzale Michelangelo, you can see all of Florence. The river Arno and Michelangelo's bridge - Ponte Vecchio can be seen and photographed from here. It is also from this vantage point that you can truly appreciate the size of the Duomo!

If you are looking for spots to take great pictures in Florence, than grab the occasion to go to the Piazzale Michelangelo. To reach the piazza, take the bus N°12 or N°13 from railway station (SMN station - Piazzale Michelangelo)
