An incredibly diverse corner of Florence, Santa Maria Novella is home to many quiet cafés, neighborhood pubs, and riverside wine bars, not to mention a couple of raging discos and some biker bars that add a touch of edgy energy to the area’s otherwise laid-back vibe.

Stretching from the magnificent façade of the Basilica di Santa Maria Novella to the bars on the river Arno, the district offers a range of cultural and nighttime attractions that draw all types and ages, from groups of boisterous football fans heading to the pubs to the chic and fashionable set strolling toward the river for a relaxing glass of wine.

But whether lounging by the river, hitting a hot club at night, or enjoying a simple picnic on the brilliant green grass of Piazza Santa Maria Novella, the neighborhood provides an abundance of activities, sights, and sounds in a welcoming, relaxing atmosphere.
