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.

“Our recent visit to the Piazzale Michaelangelo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Arguably some of the best views of Florence! We walked up the relatively Steep hill with our three kids but it was highly worthwhile. The vistas of the rivers, the bridges, and the city of Florence are fantastic. The statue of David is very cool too. Highly recommend a visit if you are in Florence.

“Amazing views of Florence!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

While it was a bit of a hike to get up all the stairs to the Piazzale Michelangelo, it was 100% worth the gorgeous views of Florence.
