One place of attraction just a little off the others is Piazzale Michelangelo. With strong legs, you can still walk to the Piazzale Michelangelo but we rather take the public transport. Bus no 13 waits for passengers outside SM Novella train station in-front of the Burger King outlet. You’ll need to buy the bus tickets beforehand and you can get it inside the train station at the tobacco shop. A bus ticket cost €1.20. You’ll need 2 for your to-and-fro journey. The bus departs every 10-15 minutes.
Piazzale Michelangelo is a large square filled with tourists and vendors. It is one of the best and most famous lookouts for a stunning panoramic view of Florence day or night. Here you’ll find a bronze replica of Michelangelo’s David. Otherwise, most of Piazzale Michelangelo is just a parking lot.
