Why locals love it

The "view from the top" just never gets old. The panoramic view from piazzale Michelangelo can make even the most jaded local fall in love with their city all over again, even with all of the vendors and travelers crowding the square!

Why you should visit it

Admittedly, you'll be up here with some of the classic tourist types, but this square is a must on your Florence to-do list. If you're a runner, make it part of your morning route—there's no better place to watch the sun rise. (Morning is the best time to go!) Late-night it's a favorite romantic spot for couples so be prepared for some PDA!

Special tip

There are 2 main ways to get there—most people climb from San Niccolo, but leaving from Porta Romana will take you on a winding, scenic route!
