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.

“Exercise and pleasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Takes a little effort to get to the top of the rather steep hill, but the views are definitely worth it. The standard panorama view of FLorence comes from this lookout.

“Must see place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Very easily accessible by bus OR from train station. The city view from the top is amazing. You can have a nice walk around. It has small shops at the top. Go & visit during evening, late-evening hours. . . the city view is at it's best during that time.

“Great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

A trip across the Arno to the Piazzale Michelangelo is well worth it. The view of the city, especially at sunset, is spectacular.
