What people are saying:

The square is on the hill, and there is a sculpture of David on the south side of the square that is very conspicuous. You can see it from a distance below the hill. Many tourists come here to see the city of Florence. You can overlook the church and other buildings.

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.
