This lookout point / giant carpark offers a great view of Florence. It's quite a rewarding walk once you reach it (perhaps 1 km from Ponte Vecchio, uphill). Go early so you are not surrounded by the tour groups, you can then still enjoy the...More

Take a bus ride up to this statue. The view is amazing- gives you a window to Florence that you don’t get from below.

Grab some walking shoes or a Go Bike and check out the Piazzale with a great view of the city. It's hot (when I was there in July) so bring water and sun gear.

Lovely place to watch the sunset, however can get very busy! Lovely bar at the top of the monument. Or stands selling gelato, beer and snacks.

The best place in Florence, even though you have to climb to get there, the sunset is amazing and it is worth it.

My wife and I walked here from the centre of Florence which took just under an hour. The view from the top is well worth it. You have an excellent view of the entire city and it's free.

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
