The Piazzale Michelangelo tour is a pleasant short walk up a picturesque hill in the green outskirts of Florence, amidst cypress trees and old buildings. Once you get to Piazzale Michelangelo, you can admire a comprehensive view of Florence and its most famous monuments. The Piazzale Michelangelo is a large terrace overlooking the city built in the nineteenth century by the architect Giuseppe Poggi and dedicated to Michelangelo. In order to homage the famous sculptor, the center of the square was adorned by a bronze monument created with reproductions of works by the Florentine artist, the four Allegories from the Sagrestia Nuova of San Lorenzo and the David. The tour to Piazzale Michelangelo will also include the visit to the Romanesque basilica of San Miniato al Monte, one of the oldest churches of Florence, a medieval treasure adorned by a spectacular marble facade of the 12th century.
