Fee: No
Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: 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.

Don't be deterred by the long climb to the top...165 steps...it is well worth it! The views of Florence are breathtaking! We sat on the steps to watch a musician sing and play the guitar. This a a site no one should miss!

The Piazzale Michelangelo is a good place to visit.
Especially at sunset this is the spot.
You will have a beautifully view over the special city of Florence.
Young people are sitting on stairs, having a drink, listen to the music and enjoy life.
And all over this a copy of David is watching .
Just beautiful.

This place has a sculpture of David and from here one can have a beautiful view of the river as well as the whole town of Florence. A must visit place.

You cannot claim that you have visited Florence City without coming to this peak. Beautiful! We took a taxi from Greve to this Piazzale to Duomo, so we didn't walk much.

Best view in Florence!

An easy stroll over the Arno. However the steps to climb would be exhausting on a hot day. There is a cafe (check of open) together with local artists and souvenir on site. The view is spectacular and you get a real chance to see the old walls of the city. Go up one way and come down the other.
