This 19th century piazza has undoubtedly the best panoramic view of Florence. The square is decorated with copies of Michelangelo's sculptures, but it's the view people come here to see.

Our friend brought us to the Piazzale at night to see the lights of Florence. It was a wonderful site with the river Arno all lit up.There were street musicians singing creating a wonderful scene. And this was all free.
