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.

A must see if you are even close to Florence. There is so much in Florence to see and experience, I wish we would have had more time. I guess that gives us a reason to go back.

A great location for views, refreshments and bus services. Inflated drinks prices in some outlets and sun-bleached garments on sale too. It is however the view you go for and it does not disappoint.

We went there at sunset and it was a sight to behold. I don't think there's a better place to sit and marvel at the sights this city has to offer.

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
