We stopped in for a beer, they have a pretty good selection, and ended up staying till 1am. We met all sorts of people locals and tourists. I'm glad we stopped in, it was pretty busy for a Sunday night.

Thought we would give it a go as we like an Irish bar but it was not good. Tried to submit this and it said it had to be 100 characters so this should do it

The Joshua Tree, aka the place we stop for the 1st beer on the post work walk into town. Firstly, understand this is, I guess, neither Italian or a pub, but a decent drinking hole. The happy hour prices are all good but often the single bartender will either be outside or over worked, so the service can suffer a... More

This review is long over due! I have been to The Joshua Tree Pub several times over the last few years. The staff is very warm welcoming and makes sure you are always having a great time! Highly recommended to stop in for a drink - you will want to stay all night long!!

Have been coming to Italy for many years and I always make time to stop by The Joshua Tree!! Enjoy visiting with Simone and Paolo who always make me feel welcome even if the pub is full of Florentines who are lucky to be able to stop by anytime. It is a great time to stop by any evening but... More

I studied abroad in Florence all summer and I liked nothing more than to finish off a night joking with the bartenders and making new friends over a drink at Joshua Tree. The people here are phenomenal, the drinks are great, and they even host a four hour long happy hour. Some of my best memories from the summer were... More

Upon my arrival in Florence, i was looking for a low key spot, close to my hotel, that i could watch the World Cup came. the Joshua Tree was recommended to me, and i... More

Staying in Santa Maria Novella

Neighborhood Profile
Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the majority of the people arriving in Florence, which might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists come across the constant hustle and bustle of the station before exiting, taking a few steps and stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It is impossible not to admire the the square, housing one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The area has plenty of local spots to taste Tuscan specialties, but don’t stop in the main streets alone; the narrower side streets always ensure satisfaction. The huge Parco Delle Cascine provides a solution to the need for a green area as well as a historic welcome in the form of a bronze statue of King Vittorio Emanuele II riding a horse.
