It doesn’t matter which of the bars and clubs in Florence people venture to, any night out in the city invariably begins with the aperitivo. The tradition begins in the early evening when most bars provide a complimentary buffet of finger foods with the purchase of a cocktail or fine local wine.

Once revelers have had their drinks and satisfied their stomachs, the nightlife continues in the many bars and clubs, pubs, and lounges that surround the piazzas and line the narrow, winding streets. The scene around Piazza Santa Croce is particularly lively, as this is the biggest party neighborhood in town and features vibrant late-night spots filled with international students ready for a good time who take full advantage of the area’s many enotecas (wine bars).

Although it may not be as prominent as in other European cities, there’s still a small but fashionable club scene to be discovered in Florence’s various neighborhoods as well.

Those who prefer a more eclectic or alternative setting to their nightlife in Florence will find it just across the Arno River in Piazza Santo Spirito, where the bar-hopping crowd is more bohemian and conversation is king at the cafés.
