Fee: No
Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: 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.

City’s view from here is overhyped. It is just like a normal city of the Europe. Shops there have vulgar dresses of Man.

It was a long walk from our hotel to this terrace but it was well worth it and the walk up the multitude of steps. The view from the top is spectacular and allows you to see all of Florence below. When there, be sure to visit the "truck" that sells gelato - it was delicious. (FYI - you have to pay first inside the connected shop). The shop had great espresso and pastries as well.

This view is simply breathtaking and one you should not miss. Especially at sunset it’s a perfect photograph opportunity worthy of going on your wall at home !

Wonderful views of the city. Watching the sunset after walking to the top was a highlight of our stay in Florence. The view was magical. You can also walk across the street to visit the cemetary and the church. It was such a lovely few hours spent floating in the clouds about Florence.

Just outside the city centre of Florence is the Piazzale Michelangelo - it's really close but prepare to walk! You have to go up a hill and then up stairs and they're both a bit steep. The views from the top are completely worth it, though!
