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.

It was definitely worth walking all those miles for. There is one magnificent view up there overviewing the whole city. Photographers like me are going to love it. There's also a replica of Michaelangelo's david up there.

A nice trip up the hill with an amazing view of the city. Visit this place! It's free, and possible to take the bus if your legs won't carry you. Only a 30 min walk from city centre. Totally worth it.

We went there to see the statue of David. It’s quite a steep walk up, but it was so peaceful to be away from the crowds in the city centre , and the views from the top are breathtaking.

We were on the piazza by 4 pm and it was a good time to take pictures. It was still very crowded as people were still taking photos. We were there until 4:45-5 pm then it got dark. Gorgeous pictures around that time and... More
