Taylor Jenkins from University of Pittsburgh brings us along on a hike through Florence and to the top of Piazzale Michelangelo. Catch some great sights of Florence and more!

Come hike to the top of the Piazzale Michelangelo with me! Today was my second day in Florence, and I hiked with CAPA to the Piazzale Michelangelo. On our way, we stopped to see Galileo’s home, which is located in the Spirito Santo district, and we hiked to the top of Forte Belvedere to see an amazing view of the city. Just before reaching the Piazzale, we saw the Basilica of San Miniato al Monte; stop in during mornings or evenings to hear the chants of the monks! Don’t forget to get some amazing paninos after your hike—there are options on almost every street!
