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 view from this place over the city is perfect. The big David is worth to visit. For me the best was the walk from the city up to this place.

One of my favourite places in Europe! Nice and clean, relaxing and the view is unique. It is definitely worth all the walking up here for the view and masterpiece

A must if you go to Florence. Take the bus up, relax and take in the view of Florence and beyond. Realize how lucky you are and walk down. It's fun. Takes about 20-30 minutes with great scenery.

Took the bus to the Piazzale Michelangelo to watch the sunset. Unfortunately it was not a very good sunset that evening but the views over Florence are worth the visit. Walked back down, which was a nice easy walk.

High up over the city the views are fantastic. For those of a healthy disposition the walk up to it is manageable. At the top you find another David .

We reached the piazzale via hop-on/hop-off bus. There is a reproduction of Michelangelo's David, and an amazing view of the city of Florence. It is well worth the effort to see this spot.

Well worth climbing the steps to this viewpoint 360 degree views all over Florence. Go further up and visit the monastery church so beautiful

We crossed the river at Point Vecchio and picked up picnic supplies as we walked up to Piazzale Michelangelo. It was a bit of a hike, but what a view! Lots of street vendors selling souveniers and selfie sticks, of course. Plus, ice cream. A...More

One thing`s for sure. At the cost of a small walk from the city, and of course a little climbing (the Piazzale sits atop a hill), you get one of the most breathtaking views ever. Florence in all its glory. There simply are no words...More

Piazzale Michelangelo
Just outside the ancient walls of Florence, Viale
Michelangiolo starts. It is a winding road rimmed by
wonderful poplars and holm oaks. The long ascent opens
up to the most beautiful and famous panoramic
viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an
elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and
breathtaking view of the entire city from above.
During good weather, Piazzale Michelangelo provides
