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.

Well, you are in Florence and of course you want to visit the Piazzale Michelangelo, but you soon discover that it is much ado about nothing. Other than the vendors hawking their wares, there is very little reason to visit here.

We loved seeing the city from this Piazzale as it shows what a beautiful city it is and a city like no other!

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Florence. Do not miss the picturesque views from atop this hill. Your friends and family will definitely be jealous of the pictures you take of the whole city from up here! great little cafe overlooking it as well. Get some wine and rest your feet!

Short drive to get picture postcard views of the city, the Arno river and Duomo. Take a camera with a good zoom.

A definite place to stop when you go to Florence. The panoramic views of Florence are remarkable. The parking is free at the site, but a serious headache. I would recommend that you get the hop on/hop off bus tour tickets and see it that way.
