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.

A bustling, noisy square with a fab vista of Florence. Walk up through the Rose Gardens to get there and have a drink in the restaurant opposite to finish off the trek.

I highly recommend anyone visiting Florence to walk or ride to Pizzale Michelangelo. The view is outstanding. The walk is challenging but well worth it. A view not to miss!

Just outside the ancient walls of Florence, Viale
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.
