What travelers say:

Designed by Giuseppe Bogey, Michelangelo Square was built in 1868 and looks out from the square towards Florence City, with red bricks, ancient architecture, the Arno River, the dome of the Cathedral of the White Flower of the Virgin Mary and so on all clearly visible, the panoramic view of Florence is even more ancient and elegant.

Additional Information

Introduction

Though originally intended by architect Giuseppe Poggi as a gallery to display the works of Michelangelo, today Piazzale Michelangelo is a panoramic lookout for tourists and locals alike. A sweeping view of Florence from this observation point captures the entire city: the Duomo, Forte Belvedere, Santa Croce, the Ponte Vecchio and more. After snapping a few photos, grab a cappuccino in the square's neoclassical-style restaurant and examine a bronze replica of The David which, along with a few other sculptures, were brought up the hill as an attempt to fulfill Poggi's original dream.
