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.

“Too crowded”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

I visited the place 35 years ago and nobody was there, no canteens, no parking lots, no music, no hustle, street vendors, buses: it was heaven, a quiet place away from the crowds, with a beautiful view of Florence. Today? HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT. Do not go, go to Fiesole instead (although I have not revisited recently and I would not like to take responsibility)

“A Great View of Florence, Don't Miss It”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Took the hop-on, hop-off bus and this was one of the stops. Magnificant view of Florence and the countryside outside the city. Certainly a great spot to take a few photos.

“Worth the Time”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

What a view! Go when you can and the weather is nice. It is a bit touristy, but it is the nest view in town!

“Storied views of Florence”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Fantastic views of Florence, but very crowded. Going early in the day would probably be a good idea. If you don't like to climb stairs, take the bus up and walk back down.
