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.

There’s really nothing to say about the Piazzale Michaelangelo except that you must go there. And go there at sunset. Check the time of sunset and give yourself plenty of time to park if you are driving. But do go. The view is simply astonishing.

Very nice place to see the city from "above". Though it's getting crowed during sunset, but there is always a spot to have a good view.

When u go up for the sunset , take few minutes looking at the far east side, over the Arno river , the view is more than spectacular. Stay there after the sunset and enjoy the sky and the street musicians

This is a bucket list stop for tourists to have a scenic view of Florence. The piazza is extremely hot with minimum tree shade from the hot sun. Lots of stalls that offer typical tourist souvenirs that are mass produced overseas. Half an hour stopover...More

You must go up to see the city and Michelangelo, but do it so you can watch the sunset. You have two options to get to the top. Steps or walkway with some steps and winding roads. People say the road is easier, the steps...More
