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.

A wonderful view of all of the city of Florence. Try to do at the end of the trip so that you can recognize all of the places you have visited.

Take the bus up. Excellent views; go early before it gets too hot. Nice walk back down the hill. There is a staircase that leads to a gate, and then a nice walk through a very old section of town; and you come out just below the Pitti Palace. You can walk back across the Ponte Vecchio. Plenty of good gelato to be had along the a way. Be sure to check prices before ordering! Prices can vary significantly.

Great views!!!! Take a cab to the top. Food at the little café was pretty poor and expensive...but you can't beat the view and the cokes are served with ice!

Take some prosecco and stay for the sunset. Florence is beautiful by day, but the view of Florence from Piazzale Michaelangelo after dark is stunning.

Bit of a work out after a long day out, but well worth to go for a sunset.... If i had more time, I would have taken a picnic or some wine, took my time and sat there for hours.... Guys - would be a pretty awesome place to propose!
