Designed by architect Giuseppe Pogg on a hill overlooking the historic centre of Florence, this square is dedicated to Florence’s most famous artist. Copies of his most iconic sculptors decorate the square. But people usually come here for the panoramic views the square offers over the city. The neo-classical loggia of the square today has a restaurant, a building originally intended to house a collection of Michelangelo’s works. Some of the iconic sights visible from the square are the Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo, the Palazzo Vecchio, and the Bargello. The backdrop of this view is dominated by the Tuscan hills around Florence.
It’s a beautiful place for more than the view; lined with pretty trees and flowering bushes. Vendors are usually selling their wares – souvenirs and snacks.

Such a beautiful place to visit. There is a great view of the city and of the statue. There are food carts nearby and a restaurant. It's a bit of a walk to get there but the is also public transport that can get you there. If you walk, be sure to check out the flower garden that is on the way down back towards Florence proper.
The Piazzale Michelangelo is a must see in Florence. It is absolutely wonderful place to visit if you would like to catch the sunset & see most of Florence & a beautiful skyline. You get a real feel of the comfort of Florence when you are at this Piazzale. It can be a bit busy especially near the edges as people like to gather & take photos. You can see the Duomo from afar & other attractions from up here. Simple stunning views.
After visiting up the hill, come down here to see a wonderful panoramic of the city. Don't hesitate to go down to the street below to get a slightly less crowded view, just be careful to watch for traffic. The stairs to the southwest lead down into the city, where you can find some nice shops and restaurants.
This vantage point offers amazing views of Florence. I went at sunset and morning and both are incredible. Although packed, it was nice to watch the sunset with some wine and watch the colors melt into the horizon.
Great views of Florence. Trek up using the walking path in the evening for a breathtaking view of the city and avoid tourist crowds. Great location for a wine and cheese picnic while taking in the view. A few food carts, but plan on bringing your own food up with you. Completely paved path all the way, only a few steps.
