A Photo Tour to Piazzale Michelangelo, Florence City, Italy

Italy is such an awesome destination. Some places don’t need a description of their beauty and the photographs say it all. Florence is one such destination and the more I share the less it will be. I will be publishing series of photo tour to Italy and here is my first one.

TOUR TO ITALY SERIES ONE

A day in Florence City!

Tuscany is the beautiful region on Italy’s west coast, on the Tyrrhenian Sea. The capital of this region is known as Florence, also called as Firenze. Firenze is also known as “La Dolce Vita”…The Good Life! The beautiful architecture by Michelangelo and paintings by Giorgio Vasari makes this a must visit Italian destination.

If you reach one of the most appreciated and best-rated destinations Florence you need to explore the city for at least a week.

More on this city in my blog later but here’s a photo tour to one of the most important visits to the Piazzale Michelangelo.

Once you settle in Florence, you can easily take a bus or bike or car and drive uphill to the Piazzale.

Below is picture gallery on this day trip we planned and totally recommend.

Welcome to San Miniato al Monte Church – One of the most scenic basilicas on the highest point in Florence. People from around the world come here to get married because of the most beautiful views.

    I have always wanted to visit Florence (actually all of Italy as it’s a country I’ve unfortunately never been to visit!). The views from the hills look spectacular 🙂

    Florence looks so beautiful! I’ve always wanted to visit different parts of Italy apart from Rome since that’s the only Italian city I’ve been to. Your photos are stunning!

      Thanks for positive feedback Helene, Rome is such a nice city too, I have been there and then moved to Venice and Florence.

    Florence is one of those cities in Italy that I have been aiming to visit this year, if not next year hopefully. San Miniato al Monte Church is really unique of its style, just looking at it the color and design is indeed ttractive. The view of the Town hall I just love that photo, thanks for this tour, I feel like in Florence already.

    Florence is by far my favorite city in Italy, possibly the world. The vibe of the city is absolutely incredible. I love all your pictures! If you go back you have to try pizza from a place called Gusta Pizza, most delicious pizza ever !

    These pictures require no description for sure. The church looks so pretty from the inside, as does the area around the Townhall. I would love to take an Italian vacation soon. Cheers!!

    I have always wanted to visit Prague, one of the reasons being the uniformly colored roofs. And that same thing goes with venice. Mever thought those colored roofs are actually made of terracottas.

      Glad that you found the post useful. Florence is one of the most beautiful European destination. You will surely have a great trip there.

      Oh yes, Florence needs at least a week or a month to be experienced. I was there for a few days but I still need to go back there for a month someday to get the feel of this place because there’s so much to explore and visit !Thank you for the appreciation,!
