Because we only had one day in Florence we took the Hop On Hop Off bus for a quick tour around the city. One of the stops we hopped off at was Piazzale Michelangelo. This is a large area and there are lots of little...More
Get the No. 13 bus. We didn't realise you could get the bus and walked up the hill and steps thinking it was a hilltop only to find a busy commercial road with a bus terminus, cafe bars and street vendors. But beautiful view and...More
To get what I would class as one of the best views of a city definitely come here. But that’s about it. There are trinket sellers and I think I saw a good van but that’s all. But you do need to see the view...More
Seriously, if you are visiting Florence you must visit this place for spectacular view of the city. No excuses. Take a bus, take a taxi, or just walk there, but be there. And make sure you don't skip Abbazia di San Miniato al Monte located...More
My mate and I walked here from our hotel, which was about 25 minutes away. The Piazzale is easily spotted from most places in Florence: just look to the south and UP. There was transitional weather when we were in Florence and it was beautiful...More
Beautiful, panoramic view of Florence! On a good weather day you will be able to spot the mountains and all the little hills surrounding the city. Worth the hike - expect stairs and walking up the hill to get there.
Just outside the ancient walls of Florence, Viale Michelangiolo starts. It is a winding road rimmed by wonderful poplars and holm oaks. The long ascent opens up to the most beautiful and famous panoramic viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and breathtaking view of the entire city from above. During good weather, Piazzale Michelangelo provides
visitors with a serene space surrounded by the amazing landscape, better if accompanied by a fresh gelato from a local kiosk. During night, visitors will be dazzled by the warm lights of the capital of the Renaissance. Spend a second with the silent Romanesque beauty of the Basilica of San Miniato al Monte: the one that wishes good morning and good night to Florence!

I recall that you can easily roll yourself around in a wheelchair, once you arrive. The best aspect of going is the magnificent view of Florence and the river. You need to plan on how you will transport the wheel chair to the top of the hill because it is too steep for someone to push yourself up the hill, but, in my opinion, it is worth renting a car, which can accommodate a wheelchair. Once at the flat top, your attendant can remove the chair and you should have no problems, except for the bumpy surface of cobblestones.

I took a golf cart tour service called Verde Oliva. It lasted about 90 to 120 minutes and we got to see the main attractions all over Florence. One of them was Piazzale MIchelangelo. The driver knew the best spot for pictures and was a great paparazzi too. I would ask them to finish the tour up there, bring a bottle of wine, cups and some treats. Watch the sunset up there, then walk down to town (it only takes 20 minutes and it is a beautiful walk).
