The area
Address
Neighborhood: Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.

Amazing view of the cathedral, with a nice refreshing coffee in hand. Good selection of pastries and snacks alongside. The architecture of the building itself is interesting to look around too.

Nice little public library that has a small cafe upstairs. It has a very nice view of the Cathedral. Stop in for a coffee and a nice picture.

We passed the 70m queues for the Duomo and took fellow trip advisors advice and popped in for a coffee. It is a student base and has a university feel to it. Good view of the dome and the coffee was not bad.

If you have some spare time during the day in doumo area, it's a lovely place to stop for coffee :) we didn't wonder around the library though, so maybe we missed something

this place isn't about books or studying, it's about the view. so just go there, ignore the "under construction" areas and all the missplaced things over therr, have a drink (very reasonable prices) and contemplate...
this is maybe the best view in town over the dome with almost no effort. my favourite place in florence.

We went here as we read about the terrace in a Marco Polo guide book. There was a great exhibition of skulls and bones and early man. The terrace cafe.... disappointing... the cafe drinks was limited... no alcohol (unlike others I've visited.. Prague) and it was inside.. no air and really hot. There was an area you could have taken your drinks but all under shade. The view of duomo...ok but don't go out your way.

Some parts of the library were closed but we weren’t there for the books anyway. On the top floor you can access a beautiful outside study area with views over the Duomo. This is perfect for a busy crowded day. You can catch your breath, log in to free WiFi and enjoy the tranquil setting.

Nothing special at all. When I am told of a library in Florence worth going to I imagine some sort of amazing large library with dark bookcases and amazing little nooks to study. Instead, you get a strange courtyard with beggars in front, a completely forgettable entrance, and then a maze to get to the multiple layers of.. nothing.. weak study rooms, no real book selection, tons of young people just being there for the sake of filling some sort of social validating "look at me study" nonsense.

There is no great view, an overrated cafe, and tons of young people. That's it. For a city like florence I would expect something incredible. A barnes and noble in America is nicer. Get real guys.
