You’re in Florence, you’ve got a hankering for some live jazz and you don’t know where to go or what to do. Unfortunately, you don’t actually have many options, but there are a couple of jazz clubs you can hit that will at least satiate your craving for a little sweet sounding saxophone.
Florence jazz clubs are few and far between, but the biggest and most well-known of them is unquestionably Jazz Club Firenze. Open from September to June, the club has hosted many famous musicians and has been the place to see live jazz since it opened in 1979.
Probably the only other mentionable jazz haunt in Florence is Pinocchio Jazz Club. Here, artists young and old spread the good word of jazz to a city that may not exactly know it exists.
For true lovers of the art form, there isn’t the greatest variety of jazz clubs in Florence, however, for a taste of those toe-tapping tunes and for something definitely out of the norm of a regular Florentine night, check out Jazz Club Firenze or Pinocchio Jazz Club and you just might start to wonder why there aren’t more venues opening at that moment.
