Located on top of one of the hills surrounding Florence, Piazzale Michelangelo is one of the most beautiful panoramic points of the city. To reach the square you can climb the Poggi Ramps that lead from Piazza Giuseppe Poggi to Piazzale Michelangelo, or, more simply, take a cab or a bus. At the center of the square stands a bronze replica of Michelangelo's David life-size, looking towards the Arno and the historic center. A few steps away are the magnificent Rose Garden and Iris Garden.

Piazzale Michelangelo

The green lung of a really wonderful Florence, with its perfectly manicured lawns, the many Renaissance sculptures and the majestic fountains, is the perfect place for a romantic walk. If you want to admire Florence from above, climb up the hill along the tree-lined paths of the park and let yourself be enchanted by the unique panorama that will open before your eyes.

The St Regis Florence

It is the kingdom of lovers.

  • A visit to the Horticulture Garden

So elegant that it was chosen as a film set, it was established by the Società Toscana di Orticoltura (Tuscan Horticultural Society) in 1852 on the property of Marquis Ginori Lisci and Marquise Venturi. In 1880 a national exhibition was organized in the city and on a design by Roster was built the tepidarium in iron and glass that still characterizes it today.

  • Sunset from Ponte Santa Trinita

Ponte Santa Trinita is one of the historic bridges that cross the Arno in the center of Florence. Adorned at the ends by four allegorical statues that symbolize the seasons, it is located between two other famous bridges: Ponte alla Carraia and Ponte Vecchio. Thanks to its privileged position, it is a perfect place to take memorable photos and admire the sun setting over Florence. Moreover, connecting the historical center with the Oltrarno district, you won't be able to miss crossing it.
