Wouldn't stay here again. The view over Florenz is amazing but this is the only good thing. The tents are old and disgusting. Don't even want to start with the facilities! We booked two nights but left after one because it was that bad.

Beware there is a nightclub next door which goes on to 4am very loud with rubbish music! The water although is drinking water is always warm. Showers were a bit broken but atleast were hot with good but intermittent water pressure. Lots of charging points at the bar. The market shop no longer exists. Walking there is a mission up steep hills and steps, and the bus route takes as long if not longer than it does to walk so if getting a bus to Firenze SMN leave plenty of time. Towel rent was €3!

Cheap and simple place. If you have no expectations rather than a place to sleep, I recommend this hostel. A bit far from the city center.

It's annoying the only plug sockets are around the restaurant area and are never free. Also the shower block needs a serious update! However, pretty cool to sleep in olive groves and the view is amazing...

Good location if you want to be a little out of the city centre. It's behind Piazzale Michelangelo so the walk has beautiful views of Florence and only takes about 20 mins. Heaps of power boards underneath the tables at the restaurant area for charging, I don't think anyone knew about them when I was there. For the price, would definitely recommend staying.

Great campsite, beautiful views and relaxed atmosphere. The staff are super friendly and helpful. Laundry and showers are not so good though- bugs all through the washing machine and ot still costs 3.50 to use. Other than that though, a wonderful stay and I will be back!!

It is a campsite, so you have to place that into consideration. Nevertheless, if you do want to get a good camping experience that essentially overlooks the city of Firenze, then this is your spot. Lot of mosquitos, so bug spray is essential unless you want to be playing connect the dots with all the red bumps on your legs. The food and drinks seemed a bit overpriced (granted, it is a campsite), but still a good experience. Definitely worth a consideration if you are planning a trip to Firenze

You get what you pay for , 15 minutes from station Florence s.m.n by bus # 12 or 13 Buy bus tickets before hand in shop for €2 euro each or on bus but make sure you have exact change as we got fined €100 for not having tickets ( our fault haha) Average camp but nothing like photos so check trip advisor first but alright stay with lovely staff and basic facilities,but was okay :) x

It was literally living in the hill. You can only use WiFi in the restaurant area and no power supply for electricity in the tent. So the tent is only a place for you to sleep. you have to go to the restaurant for charging your electrical devices. The showering place and the toilets were horribly dirty and men always entered female shower room. I have no idea why this could happen and it seemed no one care. You deserve better if you are willing to pay two or three euro more.

My son 9 yr old son & I were backpacking Italy. Please put a sign leading to the campsite on the sidewalk, we missed it because all the gates were open so the entrance sign was tucked inside the entrance. We walked an extra 100 steps passed the campsite. The campsite staff at the entrance was very friendly & helpful, thank you very much plus the staff at servers at the restaurant were hilarious. The trees I felt needed trimming overlooking the view. It was hard to enjoy the view of the city.

Exactly what I expected for the price I payed. Their description provided was very accurate, so please don't expect a five star hostel. Its CAMPING.

Fair price, easy access (you take 40 minutes to the central station by bus that stops right in front of the camping). It was a shame there wasn't plugs in the tent... Everyone had to stay in the restaurant area "disputing" for one plug, also because there wasn't wifi connecting in the tents area. Friendly environment, beautiful view, but not all the employees spoke English or had very little knowledge of it... But still recommend it!

We had a great time in Camping Michelangelo. The place and the ambient surprised us a lot (positively)!

I last came to camping Michelangelo in 2006. Since then the camp site has changed rather a bit. The upgrades of the tents is a good thing and the addition of the pizza oven and pizzeria in the evening was great. However the rest of the facilities are below standard. NOT having a market, cash machine, ironing facilities but still having sings for them is unexceptable and the bathrooms and laundry facilities looked like they hadn't been touched or cleaned since 2006. SORT IT OUT.

Bathrooms were not the cleanest , but for price camping is a good deal

Staff really friendly, campingplace looked nice. Bathrooms however were completely out of time: not clean, most showers couldn't be called showers because of the very small amount of water that passed through, sinks at children's height, mirrors too high to be useful, a huge deception. We stayed in a dormtent which was fine except for the total lack of sockets; you had to load your phone at the barplace (just 4 sockets) or hire a locker. Location fine by bus, but to far/dark to walk at night.
