They charge you more if you want to sit at a table. Never seen that before. Super unfriendly. Do not recommend at all.

Where to start. The only positive were the views. Overpriced. Banana split was 90% cheap cream (saying some when they display Italian gelato that could have been used and they charged €9)! The nibbles with the wine we paid €6 per glass were stale. Staff...More

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.
