This structure really stood out if you are descending from Piazzale Michelangelo. It was first erected in 1324 and is formerly the defensive walls of Florence. There are 160 steps to the submit and it definitely offers you a different angle or perspective on how...More

If you are visiting Piazzale Michelangelo, you will likely see this Torre from the terraces. It looked interesting enough to walk to on my way out.

The Torre di San Niccolo is located across the Arno River on Piazza Poggi. If you climb to the top you get nice views of the city.

This tower looks abandoned. Maybe it will be a nice view from its top but I think you can't actually climb up there. It is in the middle of a square full of cars (parking?). You should probably keep walking up till you reach the...More
