Piazzale Michelangelo, Florence (Italy)

Piazzale Michelangelo is a best and most popular lookout for the stunning view of the Florence both the day and night. It is one of the best places where you can enjoy the view and the best part of it is that it is for free. You need to have a steep walk but Piazzale Michelangelo sunset is really worth with an amazing view.  Many have the misunderstanding that Piazza exist from the time Florence was formed and also that this is designed by Michelangelo. It is but a comparatively recent construction considering the historic monuments that are housed in Florence.

History of Piazzale Michelangelo 

Piazzale Michelangelo was constructed in the year 1869 and it was done by Giuseppe Poggi who is a Florence architect. It was constructed along with the restructuring of city walls that was done in the year 1869.

Dedicated to Michelangelo

Poggi made this terrace in the 19th century for showcasing the masterpieces of Michelangelo. He designed the monument base dedicated to Michelangelo where he could exhibit the replicas of Michelangelo's work like David, Medici Chapel sculptures from San Lorenzo is displayed. He also had constructed a hillside building with the loggia in the form of a museum that can hold Michelangelo's work but today it is used as the place for a coffee bar and a restaurant that has a panoramic terrace.  

Piazzale Michelangelo is the place dedicated in the name of the popular artist Michelangelo Buonarroti. The square has the replica of the popular statue he has made, the David. This statue is fixed on the large pedestal and is made out of bronze. It is decorated with the replicas of allegorical statues that depict day, night, dusk and dawn.

View from Piazzale Michelangelo

Piazzale Michelangelo at night allows breathtaking views of the cityscape. People love this place for taking the best pictures of the city. The square has so many market stalls that sell snacks and souvenirs. The square is indeed the best place to be even when there is too much commercialization in this place.  

The city of Florence looks amazing in the backdrops of Tuscan hills. A clear view of the city’s important landmarks including Palazzo Vecchio, Ponte Vecchio and Duomo gives one with great pleasure. Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence is situated on the southeastern side of the city center. It is a very popular spot and famous as the best observation point. The night view from this terrace is very beautiful at this place.

    Armaankohli's 6 days trip to Florence

    Firstly thanks to Mr PRASHANT and SHUBHAM from hubholiday . It was our honeymoon Trip ,and we had an unforgettable trip to Italy. Everything was taken care of by Shubham And Prashant from HubHoliday. Shubham was extremely helpful and managed the entire bookings/Itinerary pretty well. Hotel Prope
    rty Were really Great and at good Location . It was an unforgettable memory of my life . We have booked the jet airways flights , but before our travel jet airways flights cancelled , Mr Prashant called the airlines and booked ethihad flights with no extra charge . A special note to Hub Holiday team - Prashant and Shubham who were 24*7 available on phone and never left a stone unturned to address my query or provide guidance as and when I required. Shubham worked really hard on understanding our requirements and went through several iterations to give us the best possible plan. Truly speaking, we couldn't have created one like this ourselves. We were booked at centrally located 3/4 star hotels and had all the transfers included. We wanted to keep our schedule relatively relaxed, so were given bookings on cruises, day passes which included free public transportation & entry to some of the spots, hop on-hop off city tours which gave us a lot of flexibility and still let us see the best that the city had to offer. We we're quite confused in the beginning as to how the itinerary will be and what are the best places to visit in Europe .Shubham has guided us to go to italy as italy was within our budget . Audi cars were provided for pick up and drops!!A big Thanks to Shubham , Prashant and your team for providing the excellent arrangement and support throughout the trip.I would love to have another trip with HubHoliday in future.

    The itinerary was very well planned to cover and give a very good experience of entire Italy. The tours offered were also great. Hotels were nice and located near to train stations. The cab drivers were also good as they reached to pick up well before the time. In all the travel agent provided a g
    ood package with continuous timely assistance also whenever required. Looking forward to book further holidays through them also. Well Done.

    Kadambri's 6 days trip to Florence

    The overall experience was really good.we had a great time in all the three cities.Things moved as per our planned iternary.However would like to share few experiences so as your team can keep this in mind for any other travelers.first experienxe-the driver who came to pick us up looked little irr
    itated as he had to wait for quite sometime.Though our flight arrived on time but I guess he came there an hour before and thus had to wait long but with no fault of ours. Second I-I believe planning a visit to Venice itself makes Gondola ride inevitable.It is a kind of experience which every traveler looks forward to.I would suggest to keep it a private tour instead of a shared tour so that the experience goes at par with expectations.I would suggest to prediscuss this with each traveler and then take it forward accordingly and customize if need be.Rest all was really good,the services and responses from the agent were very prompt and supportive .Thanks for making it so beautiful..Will definitely like to take your services in future as well Visit to Vatican city, florence -tower of pisa and so many others

    Thank you @ Mr Rajat from hubholiday. Our trip to Italy was planned very nicely and with comfort as well. Hotels he selected were near to each and every station. Itenary was planned in a manner where we had time to rest at night but covered all iconic spots of the city. Mr Rajat was very helpful in
    timely informing about the corona issue, which was very important for me and my family to know about this outbreak of news. I would recommend from my personnel experience Mr Rajat from HubHoliday to plan tour and holidays.
