Piazzale Michelangelo

The Piazzale Michelangelo is the perfect place to see a breathtaking view of Florence. It’s located up on a hill across the Arno River, and is far worth a walk or bus ride over.

Heels are not suggested for this visit 😛

Sunset is my favorite time to visit this square

—————————————–

You can view some of the countryside, with what remains of the third set of the Roman walls

—————————————–

And you can see a beautiful, panoramic view of the city of Florence

—————————————–

And you can see a lovely view of the city's outskirts and mountains in the distance

The square is not only a major tourist spot, but also a hangout for locals who were walking around and drinking wine on the steps.

My favorite view is actually from the Basilica di San Miniato al Monte, which is just a quick detour away from the Piazzale Michelangelo and a little higher up. I actually prefer sitting outside the church more than Michelangelo's Square...I'll be blogging about the church soon probably.
