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.

The most beautiful views in Florence and the grounds are amazing! You can walk up a very steep hill or take the bus up.

View of the city. Nice open space, food at restaurant above area and another on a lower tier. Only detractor are the large amount of street vendors and other sketchy looking guys hovering around. Must do as you leave town.

If you are in good physical condition, I suggest walking up to Piazzale Michelangelo. The ride is pleasant and the view is beautiful.

Great place to visit to get some panoramic shots of Florence. Lovely drive through the hillside mansions and high end hotels to get there. One restaurant/cafe there and the usual cheap souvenir stalls - not much else.

They view was breathtaking-definitely worth taking the time to visit. The bus ride up gives you a feel of the suburbs around Florence. The church is also worth the climb!
