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 is worth going here where it is less busy then the actual David in the museum. It is an exact replica, so you might want to save your money and the very long lines to get in.

The plaza is a great place to spend time admiring the David without the crowds at the Gallery. Its situated in a good location with many options for eats, sightseeing and shopping. The only down side is that there is not much seating available.

I was there close to sunset and loved the view. It wasn't too full and the sales guys weren't pushy.

This view is magnificent but be prepared to climb a lot of steep steps for a long time. If we had known we may have taken a taxi.

Lovely view over the citta. Go to San Miniato al Monte for a quick look at Michelangelo’s favorite church.

Great place to watch the sunset. While we rode bikes, I did notice a large parking lot for cars. Street musicians, vendors, and food trucks made it a fun place to visit.

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.
