The neighborhood surrounding the Duomo, one of Italy’s largest cathedrals, is packed during the day with Florence tourists marveling at Renaissance masterpieces and historical treasures, and well-to-do shoppers browsing the high-end stores for designer goods by the likes of Ferragamo, Cavalli, Gucci, and Prada.
By night, the hordes of Duomo visitors venture out to meeting places like Piazza della Repubblica, which are filled with families enjoying gelato and young partiers lounging around the steps and fountains.
Though the nightlife around the Duomo is rather low key, there is a sampling of bars and late-night clubs that cater to students and expats.
