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.

“Great Sunset views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

This Piazzale sits a top of the city.Its an easy bus ride from the main bus station and stay there till sunset. It feels so peaceful and very romantic.

“Breathtaking views of Florence!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

I was told by a friend to definitely go to the Piazza de Michelangelo because of the views and she was definitely right. To see Florence from this vantage point is spectacular!
There are plenty of people around (we came before sunset) and we found some friendly tourists like ourselves to take our picture.
It definitely helps you appreciate the city because when you are in the midst of it visiting museums and churches you get caught up in the history and art, but by seeing it from a distance you get a whole new perspective.

Definitely worth walking over to the Piazzale Michelangelo for the great city views, and checking out the Ponte Vecchio on the way!

“For us, Piazzale Michelangelo is a must”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

Whenever we are in Florence we love to walk over the Arno river and weave our way through the streets and climb the stairs up Viale Galileo to reach the Piazzale. The view from here is fabulous, a photographers delight. After a visit here make your way up to Basilica di San Miniato al Monte, stop for a little while in the gardens.

“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

This is the best view in Florence. Easy walk from anywhere within the old city walls, and stunning panoramic view of Florence.
