Piazzale Michelangelo is decorated with bronze replicas of some of Michelangelo's best-known sculptures. This famous square offers panoramic city views. Designed by architect Giuseppe Poggi and built in 1869, this plaza stands on a hill just south of the historic town center. Poggi designed this public space as a terraced observation deck, which today houses a popular restaurant. The view encompasses the heart of Florence, numerous bridges crossing the river Arno, and the hills beyond the city's skyline.

  • In spite of overcast, cool temperatures this and the adjoining San Minato church proved to be " can't miss " locations to view Firenze. We were in this plaza in the evening and again during the day...

  • Fantastic place to be visited, you've got a big overview about Florence. I suggest time in the afternoon close to sunset, lights will be very romantic.

  • Must see, if you are in Florence! By night and day!!!
  • You get a great view over the city from this place. A must visit for photographers. It's easy to reach by car. By foot it is a bit more difficult to reach. I took some great pictures from up there.
