The bus 12 arrives to the square, but it is best to get up to the area on foot on the long stairs of San Niccolò. Along the way you will see a wonderful garden where you can relax a bit, and then continue your climb.

Come here at sunset, when it is not so hot, and Florence is transformed into a magical place. Bring a wine and a snack, take a blanket and meet the sunset on the main viewing area of ​​the city.
