We stumbled in to Volume when the Sunday Street Market on the Square was underway. A thoroughly charming coffee shop and bar by night, it is eclectic, with quirky art on the walls, centuries old architecture and super cool and friendly staff. Volume gets busier as the day proceeds and they have some wonderful local musicians playing at night. Great... More

Gnocchi Gorgonzola very tasty - but be prepared as it is rich. Friendly staff, had to wait a few minutes for an outside table as the place is very popular.

Two Italian beers for €10. Nice complementary snacks. Good service. Outdoor seating is also available. Be sure to check out their awesome wood sculpture collection on the book shelf inside.

I came here a bunch when I was in Florence for a few weeks as we were staying only a few streets away. This is a great place to come for coffee or an afternoon wine with friends or just by yourself. The place is transformed at night and you're lucky to get a spot inside. The staff are great... More

Great and reasonable spot for drinks or late night food and drink. It's tucked away from the main tourist areas and in a nice piazza with a few other restaurants and bars. Definitely a good place to drink after dinner

I used to LOVE going to Volume- especially for their Negroni cocktails during happy hour. I wrote a wonderful article about them a few years back and have recommended this bar to many people. Lately, I began going during the day to write with my colleagues. Yesterday, I asked some friends to meet me there in the afternoon. Well, the... More

Great little place which used to be an old carpenters workshop on a wonderful piazza which is bustling day and night. Really cool and quirky inside with great decor, with great value wine, beer, cocktails, smoothies and coffee. The food looked great too. But the best bit is the aperitivo, from 18:00-21:00 snack food adorns the bar and is placed... More

What a great place to stop for a cocktail. Half the price of the swankier bars and full of atmosphere and life. Generous snacks come with the drinks, Nd it's in a lovely piazza.

It's a very nice place to drink something. It is not so far from the middle of Florence. Perfect for alternative afternoon.

Great drink after dinner, fun ambiance with good music and people watching. Lots of college kids and older hanging out in the piazza and drinking in the lounge. Lively atmosphere, but not a club at all. Chill and relaxing.

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.
