Piazzale Michelangelo, Florence Reviews - Write a Review
This place is definitely worth the hike! Be advised that there are an enormous amount of steps but it is acceptable for the view it offers. Of course you could take a taxi but why would you when you would miss walking through the neighborhoods and seeing life on the other side if the bridge where there are a lot of places that make things by hand! Great place for sunset
The most amazing view in all of Florence. Get a bottle of wine, sit on the steps and soak in the beautiful view. I always came during the sunset and it has always managed to take my breath away. Sit on the steps and enjoy and many times there will be someone playing some music for you to enjoy as well!
Just do it. Just go and hike those endless steps to the top. The view is so worth it... It's breathtaking, really. Especially at night when the city is light up and the surrounding mountains are pitch black, simply highlighting the lights gleaming through the streets of Florence ❤️ you just gotta go... Because the picture I will post won't do it Justice!
I timed my visit so that I saw daylight, magic hour, sunset, and dark. Lovely lovely lovely view of the city. Enough people that you don't feel ....at risk. NOTE: The walk up is - up up up up A chance to see yet another copy of David.
This is a must see while in Florence. It is a large piazza at the top of a hill that has the most spectacular views of all of Florence. It is famous to go just before sunset as the views and colours of the Sun setting over the red roofs of Florence is a memory you will never forget. Even though we live close, we still go every time we are in Florence. It is a reminder how lucky we are to be here.
