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.

Some of the best views of Florence, it's worth the trip to get up here. You could take public transportation to get here, but the uphill walk is a good way to work off a bit of all the gelato that you've been eating.

Make sure you get up to this Piazza on your trip to Florence for spectacular views over the city. The Hop On/Hop Off bus has stops here or you can walk up.

If you want to take a nice pic of the city of Florence you have to walk here. There are some gradians up to get there but the place it's beautiful. Don't drink anything there because it's very expensive. Well it's just a recommendation.

What a sweet view. The David statue adds to the majesty of this place, which offers a panoramic view of Florence and its environs. It's best at sunrise if you can make it.

From The Accademia I would suggest walking as it isn't far. However the walk up to San Miniato or the Piazzale is rather steep and the stairs would prove to be difficult for prams. When you reach the top, the view is well... More
