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.

We went on a cruise. This sight is nice has amazing views of the city. A couple of nice restaurants in walking distance. No bathrooms on site you have to walk to one of the stores. Lots of little kiosk shops.
