How to have a picnic on the Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence
It is believed that this area offers the most beautiful view of Florence. From here you can see how the painted orange river Arno, shimmering dome of the Duomo, the bell tower of the Duomo cuts the clouds.

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.
