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.

It’s a bit of a hike up to the top of the hill, over 100 steps, but definitely worth it, for the view at the top, from where you can see over the whole town.

Seriously, if you are visiting Florence you must visit this place for spectacular view of the city. No excuses. Take a bus, take a taxi, or just walk there, but be there. And make sure you don't skip Abbazia di San Miniato al Monte located...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
