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.

Nice view, but rather crowded and only limited parking spots. Best to do by bus or car. Walk a bit downhill and you will find less crowded spots for nicer photos.

Iconic view of the Duomo and the surrounding area. There are a couple of very good vantage points and boards pointing out the highlights should you need them.The only minus point is the lack of decent food outlets...
