We stopped here for coffee on our way to a museum show and that was perfect for this venue. It is a little counter culture hole in the wall just next to Santa Spirito with coffee, fresh-squeezed juices, the usual pastries and sandwiches and other light fare. It is a place where people come to sit for a while and... More

Around this area we found an expectation to have food with our glass of wine and pay extra - or forego a table and stand at the bar. Volume are much more accommodating and the snacks they provide are free rather than in the cost of drinks. Good vibe and affordable. €27 for a bottle of wine, small beer and... More

Volume is one of the best aperitivo places I could advice someone to go. The reason is that I love Santo Spirito as an area in Florence becuase not a lot of tourists go there. Employees are very welcoming and fun and creative. I really loved the decoration and the atmosphere especially the music they would play such as beatles... More

best cheesecake i've ever tasted! you could even choose a topping to go with it: nutella, jam or creame. while i chose the nutella, i think even without it, their cheesecake was simply divine! it was super soft and creamy; you could really taste the cheese; not like other cheesecakes that's mixed with gelatin, making it too firm. volume's cheesecake...

Kind of cool & small dark jazz bar over the river. Good wine good prices, great music & atmosphere, seemed to be very much a locals bar. Free snacks early evening too.

Staying in Santo Spirito / San Frediano

Neighborhood Profile
Santo Spirito / San Frediano
A warm evening with a cocktail in your hand and great company is the ideal way to experience Piazza Santo Spirito; the area is busiest at sunset for happy hour. Visitors cannot hide their astonishment sitting on the staircase under the Basilica of Santo Spirito, and they cannot help but stare at the architectural masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria delle Carmine churches. Tourists and Florentines alike join up in the area between Santo Spirito and San Frediano, connecting the Tuscan soul to the international spirit permeating the city.
