The park is located about halfway up the climb to Piazzale Michelangelo along Scalea dei Monte alle Croci, and offers a brief respite doing the climb. From this garden, you overlook the Arno and the historic district of Florence. There are numerous objets d’art placed...More

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.
