Piazzale Michelangelo, Florence
Posted by Avital Pinnick on September 6, 2012
Piazzale Michelangelo, on the south side of the Arno river, is probably on almost every photographer-tourist’s checklist. It’s easy to see why. If the weather is suitable, you can capture amazing views of Florence at sunset.
Because the view is free, this site is very popular with backpackers and students. The first night we climbed up, a couple musicians were entertaining the kids on the large staircase.
Here’s a short video I took with my iPod. The girls playing rhythm instruments and swinging orange tubes are volunteers from the audience.
