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 Beautiful View Of My Trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

From the Piazzale Michelangelo, you can see all of Florence. The river Arno and Michelangelo's bridge - Ponte Vecchio can be seen and photographed from here. It is also from this vantage point that you can truly appreciate the size of the Duomo!

Very nice attraction with great view of Firenze, the best place for taking pictures! Not that crowdy either if your early. Went here also at nighttime, great place for watching the sunset... a must visit!

“Piazza Micelangelo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

If you are looking for spots to take great pictures in Florence, than grab the occasion to go to the Piazzale Michelangelo. To reach the piazza, take the bus N°12 or N°13 from railway station (SMN station - Piazzale Michelangelo)

“Gorgeous View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

Walk around the entire piazzale to experience all the views. I went around 945AM and there were only a few people there, but around 1015AM bus loads of people showed up which dampened the moment. Pay a visit to the quiet bascilica near by.
