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.

“The most stunning view of Florence!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

This is by far the best view of Florence that you can get! It is a bit of a walk, definitely a bit of a work out, however you can not get a more amazing view! Once you get to the top there are stands where you can buy water and gelato and normally there are a few musicians playing and it creates a lovely place to view the city. If trying to avoid the steps to the top, there is a city bus that goes directly to the top avoiding the hassle of the walk, but either way you get there it is definitely worth it!

“I made it as sunset!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 25, 2012

Having just arrived at Florence, we decided to take the bus so we can make it in time for sunset and we made it. The view of Florence was absolutely fantastic at dusk when you witness the city lights slowly coming to life. Glad we made it on time, you should too :-)

“Relaxing place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012

Love going here and just hanging out, watch the sun set and the performers. If you're taking the bus, buy your return tickets with your tickets to go there, much less of a hassle to get back.
