E.N. Story



Tamero’ pasta bar is the locals’ (as well as Travelens’) favorite hangout. The interior space is diligently sloppy and the staff is polite and attentive. Tamero’ is the ideal destination to enjoy a few drinks and relax with the sounds of a live band. If the weather allows it, opt for the exterior space, so you can enjoy some people-watching at the Santo Spirito Square. Highly Recommended (H)

Note: On days with bad weather Molo5 remains closed. It closes in early September and opens in early May.

At the terrace of the Plaza Hotel Lucchesi there is the Empireo bar. The view that the bar offers is one-of-a-kind, with the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, the Basilica of the Holy Cross (Santa Croce), the Arno River and the towers of the national library of Florence, being only a few of the most important attractions. Entrance to the public starts late in the afternoon (19:30), while the price includes a cocktail and food from the most delicious buffet (aperitivo). It is a very special choice for an outing that you shound not miss. Recommended (R)

Notice: a) Reservation is necessary at the hotel’s e-mail address. b) On days with bad weather the roof remains closed.

Molo5 is the ultimate place for entertainment in Florence. It is an outdoor space located next to the Arno River and it is the biggest refuge for Florence’s youth. Within the space there are five choices for fast food (food-booth style) like pizza, burgers, sea food and vegetarian dishes, while the cocktails, beers and wines are always flowing. There are events taking place such as live bands, plays, DJs, cinema nights etc. –almost- daily. An amazing experience that you shouldn’t miss. Highly Recommended (H)

Note: On days with bad weather Molo5 remains closed. It closes in early September and opens in early May.
