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.

  • This was definitely the highlight of our trip to Florence! We had to hike up the road as the stairs were closed, which was quite tiring but definitely worth it for the views. I'm not sure how...

  • Great view of the heart of Firenze! The large piazza offers fantastic views of the city both during day and night. There are tons of parking but can get full pretty quick as it’s a very popular tourist spot.
  • If you want to feel the beauty of Florence. Don't engage yourself in the history, because you will forget the details very soon, but try to absorb the majestic building and style of the city center in your eyes and heart. Enjoy restaurant there and then again enjoy the beauty of Florence.
