Fee: No
Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: 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.

Well worth the hike. The view of town is amazing. Arduous though. Go to the monastery and walk through the cemetary.

Do to the high of the plaza you can have a perfect view of the city of Florence outstanding the Doumo, the Ponte Veccio and the Palazzo Veccio. No view like this.

Getting there walking could be tirying due to the inclination and an opportunity is to have handicap facilities and better stairs. Besides the view of Florence, nothing else to do there.

We walked here rather than taking a cab. The last 1/4 mike was steep and uphill...quite the trek! The view was incredibly beautiful. A very nice site to see the entire city of Florence and Tuscany.

It was a long, uphill walk at the end of a busy day, but worth it to get a beautiful view of the river and tops of Florence. Bring a picnic or snacks or a bottle of wine and watch the sun set.

Nothing much about the piazza, but the views from it are superb, and it's a lovely walk up from Florence, don't be lazy and take the bus, walk!!
