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.

Your visit to Florence is never completed if you don’t climb up to Piazzale Michelangelo. The view is breathtaking! You can spend hours here especially when the weather is nice.

The most amazing view in the city. It is truly breathtaking. Late afternoon provided a view of sun late in the day as it was setting. many people and camaras but worth the effort.

This is a vintage point to view Florence. We attended a music performance on the steps . We climbed the stairs to reach the top. There is a road also which takes you up.

The plaza is the best place to see the city view from the top of the hill. The view is just amazing and the place is relaxing and cozy! I went there both in the daytime and nighttime! Highly recommended!

elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and
breathtaking view of the entire city from above.
