Piazzale Michelangelo - Review
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.
Designed and built as a tribute to Florence’s most famous artists, the beautiful city square is among the busiest and most frequented attraction among visitors. The best thing about the place is that people do not need to buy Piazzale Michelangelo Tickets to enter the premises. There is no long lines to get the Tickets for Piazzale Michelangelo as the entrance is completely free. One just need to go there to enjoy some great time watching the overview without spending money on anything including Piazzale Michelangelo Ticket Prices.

Piazzale Michelangelo, Florence Reviews
This is definitely the best place to enjoy the view of Firenze! Be prepared as you need to step on an endless stairs to the top of piazza. But it was all worth it! You’ll be presented with the authentic view of Firenze up there. The piazza is very big and there’s an amphitheater where you can sit there and enjoy the view. Best time to visit this place is on spring or summer, around 6 pm to 8 pm where the sun is about to set. The yellowish light from the sun ray will hit the buildings below and give the most beautiful scene you’ll ever see. There are some cafes up here so you don’t have to worry if you’re hungry. But the best tips for me is to bring your own food and drink as you may not want to climb the stair twice.
Parking spot only 20 minutes walking from the city center. It is not easy to get a spot here during the weekend, so it would be better to arrive early in the morning. From here you will enjoy a great view of the city from above, so it is worth passing by just for that. Best time to be here is for the sun set, as the sky turns pink and all the city seems magical. Parking costs a lot! 1 Euro for the first hour, then 2 Euros for each of the following hours.
Beautiful! If you're interested in the culture, I highly suggest that you make this a stop on your list along with many others that I plan on adding. Be sure to pay close attention to the brass doors as they tell a story. Also pay close attention to the pink and green marble that was used to construct the building. Absolutely gorgeous! It amazes me to think that people during those times had the ability to create some of the art that was created.
Incredible view of the city! Well worth the walk and climb (it is quite steep!) lots of street food and drink (beer/wine as well as soft drinks) at the top. If you're lucky maybe a street band! I recommend going at sunset, watching the light fade while the city lights up is amazing.
One of the greatest place to visit in Florence. View from this point is amazing. Will suggest to visit it at the evening to watch sunset. Although there is road for cars however i will suggest to take pedestrian path. It is a little bit difficult but interesting and you will meet street musicians.
