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.

I love this place. I lived in southern Italy for 18 years and I traveled to Florence very often. This is one of my favorite places. Breath-taking view at night and during the day. Great restaurants in walking distance. If you don't have much time,...More

This is not an exaggeration: this is one of the great views in the world. The scene of Florence spread out before you is breathtaking and unforgettable. From the train station, directly in front, take the #12 or #13 bus and within a half hour...More

You have to go here if you are going to Florence. The view is truly breathtaking, especially at sunset. Take a bottle of wine, some meat and cheese and enjoy the view.

Gorgeous view! Great to bring some wine and bread/cookies for the sunset! A bit of a hike but was told there’s a bus.

We went up to the Piazzale on our last evening in Florence and got some terrific panoramic views of the city all lit up. Such a beautiful way to end our week in Florence.

We went here first thing to view the whole city and the old Roman wall encircling it with our Eco Green tour (and best tour guide Lucca). it is amazing but I'd suggest taking the tour cart up there as it's a BIG hike up!

We came late in the afternoon and watched the sunset. It was BEAUTIFUL! My 3 year old daughter had a blast running around and listening to the musicians.

wonderful poplars and holm oaks. The long ascent opens
up to the most beautiful and famous panoramic
viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an
elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and
breathtaking view of the entire city from above.
