Welcome to World Traveler in Training!

the View from Michelangelo Piazza, Florence

By Thursday, June 20, 2013 ,

Michelangelo Piazza is quite close to Basilica di San Miniato al Monteand the rose garden, with beautiful views over Florence. In a city where nearly all the attractions cost money, the walk and lovely view was a great experience that cost nothing.

The walk was pretty steep in some places and I wish I'd brought water and maybe something to eat. There are vendors selling food and gelato at the top, but it's expensive and of the 'hot dog stand' type.
