Fee: No
Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
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.

Incredible views of Florence. Recommend hilltop restaurant and little Gelato stand near the Taxi area.

Awesome and spectacular views of the entire city! The Ferrari Test Drive is also there and a great experience! Must stop at this place on the tour bus!

While it was a bit of a hike to get up all the stairs to the Piazzale Michelangelo, it was 100% worth the gorgeous views of Florence.

Take the walk up the steps (LOTS OF THEM) for an amazing view of Florence as the sun sets. Be prepared for a tiring climb, but it is well worth it for the gelato at the top and the unmatched view. There are also some nice restaurants on this side of the Arno to stop in for the walk back.
