Florence, Italy is an incredible city that, in my opinion, has some of the most gorgeous views to enjoy. If you’re visiting Florence anytime soon, I highly recommend checking out some of these locations for the perfect view!
One of the best views in Florence! My favorite time to visit is early in the morning or at sunset. This is a beautiful view of Florence because you can see the Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, and the stunning hills of Tuscany. The greatest part about Piazzale Michelangelo is that every time you visit, the view appears brand new. There hasn’t been one time I’ve visited where I’ve experienced the same colors in the sky or atmosphere around the square. This is probably why locals and tourists go frequently!
View on Art
One of the many rooftop bars in the city that overlooks the stunning Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral. I prefer View on Art because the outside terrace is quite small and usually not that crowded. I suggest going in the afternoon for a typical Italian aperitivo, there is no better way to enjoy this stunning view with drinks and snacks.
La Terrazza Sul Duomo
This incredible view is available to those who stay at the gorgeous La Terrazza Sul Duomo hotel. I highly recommended staying here while visiting Florence. It’s in the heart of the city and the hotel’s terrace on top is an escape from the crowds.
There are a couple gardens around Florence but one of my favorites is the Bardini Gardens. Located in the heart of San Nicolo just across the river, these gardens give you a stunning view of the Duomo. The Bardini Gardens are huge and offer plenty of quiet spaces and hidden treasures. For 10 euros you can explore the entire garden and find a nice spot to sit and take in the views of beautiful Firenze.
Ponte Santa Trinita
From the Ponte Santa Trinita bridge, the Ponte Vecchio is perfectly visual. The Ponte Vecchio is one of the most famous bridge’s in Italy. It’s a stunning bridge that hosts dozens of jewelry shops. I prefer to enjoy the view of the Ponte Vecchio from the Santa Trinita bridge. This view is enjoyable anytime of the day but my advice would be to sit along the Santa Trinita with a pizza at sunset and watch the colors on the Ponte Vecchio change with the sun.
