Florence Cafés Overview

Zoe - Art Gallery | Café | Cocktail Bar in Florence

Cafés aren’t just a place to eat or drink in Florence, they’re a way of life as anyone who’s had Italian coffee and partaken in the daily ritual of aperitivo can attest to.

There are so many cafés in Florence that it’s not easy to decide where to go. The first place to start is undoubtedly around the piazzas that make up so much of daily Florentine life. Piazza Santo Spirito, Piazza Santa Croce, Piazza del Campo, and Piazzale Michelangelo dot the city and feature many lazy cafés to while away the hours watching the activity taking place in and around the famous squares.

Of course one of the best ways to enjoy the Florence cafés is through the daily aperitivo. Cafés all over the city open their doors for the Italian version of Happy Hour, inviting guests to eat cicchetti, drink some wine, and engage in casual conversation.

Regardless of where you go or why, cafés are great for brunch or lunch, doing some work outside, grabbing an espresso, hanging out with friends, or having a date during the day. And with all the options in Florence, it’s easy to do any one of them every single day of the week.
