If you are visiting Piazzale Michelangelo, you will likely see this Torre from the terraces. It looked interesting enough to walk to on my way out.

The Torre di San Niccolo is located across the Arno River on Piazza Poggi. If you climb to the top you get nice views of the city.

Not the best or biggest tower in Florence. Somewhat simple overall but definitely worth a look if on this side of the Arno river

I loved this place. Old Historic Defense Tower, what's not to love. Really gives you a feel of life in the renaissance period, with these towers. It also was even more special after seeing so many in the Assassins Creed game.

Piazzale Michelangelo
Just outside the ancient walls of Florence, Viale
Michelangiolo starts. It is a winding road rimmed by
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.
During good weather, Piazzale Michelangelo provides
