Piazzale Michelangelo

If you want to catch those iconic, sweeping views of Florence you've seen in postcards, head to Piazzale Michelangelo. From an elevated position overlooking the city, the fabulous views take in the city's fortified walls, the River Arno, the tower of the Palazzo Vecchio and, of course, the round red dome of the Duomo.

During the day, drink in the views as you stroll along the Renaissance promenade, overlooked by yet another copy of Michelangelo's David. Return in the evening for magical views of Florence floodlit at night.

Practical Info

Piazzale Michelangelo is on the southern bank of the River Arno, in the Oltrarno area.

To get here on foot you need to cross the Ponte alla Grazie bridge near the Santa Croce basilica and make your way to Piazza Poggi. From here, follow the steeply climbing steps and pathways leading uphill from the river to the piazza. Allow a good 45 minutes.
