I sat at the outdoor cafe on a very hot day. Not only did they have fans, but the fans had water misting, so it was a great cool-down. I had iced espresso and tirimasu torte - heaven! No rushing. Lovely place to rest while...More

The Rivoire is a Florence institution. A grand caffe with a perfect view of the Palazzo della Signoria. One of the best places in Florence to watch people go by, listen to a night time concert & enjoy la dolce vita. The drinks are superbly...More

We had cappaccini here, after a morning of museums. It was a nice experience. Prompt and courteous service and of course great views, whilst sitting under canopies shading us from the midday sun. But not cheap (though not as expensive as I'd expected). A nicer...More

I have no idea what the place is like for dinner, but for a quick lunch and some people watching, it is without equal. Located in the heart of the Piazza Della Signoria, it can't help but cater to the thousands of locals and tourists...More

We ordered the chocolate tasting platter... which was quite heavenly- my favourite was the pistachio stuffed milk chocolate! To balance things off I ordered a fennel salad which was super fresh. Great location - fab place for people watching. Only one sad thing - terrible...More

Rather expensive considering the more ordinary food they serve, but well packed and delicious. Considering the location, not a bad choice, but nothing to remember, really.

Every visitor coming to Florence for the first time
will immediately identify with Uffizi. As in past
times, passing through Via dei Calzaiuoli, you can
reach the city center, the Florence that everybody
dreams of. In just a few steps, visitors can
experience the rare beauty of the capital of the
Renaissance. walking delighted across Palazzo Vecchio
