Got breakfast for two for the price of one coffee near the Duomo. Only a couple of streets away, definitely worth seeking out along a quieter side street. Clearly popular with the locals who were chatting to the bar staff like old friends. Definitely the place to go for a €1 coffee and the best focaccia we found during our... More

Every time we are in Florence we visit Verazzano, it's a piece of old Italy. Great for a light lunch, but you will probably have to queue, but worth the wait. The traditional Tuscan food is very good and the wines superb. Quite expensive but worth it, just for the atmosphere.

Stopped here in between the Uffizi and the Duomo and it was the perfect spot. A bit higher end than most of the options in the area, but worth the money for the calm vibe. Food was good, more appetizers than proper meals, but filling and good. Wine was solid too. Clean, good service and nice atmosphere.

Stacked with plenty authentic Tuscan treats, its worth a stopover. There was a long queue for tables, but takeaway options are available too. I did exactly this, and enjoyed my delicious sandwich on a bench whilst people watching in one of the many pretty city squares.

A wonderful place for a casual light lunch whilst shopping or sightseeing. Great bruschetta, and little Tuscan delicacies such as fried chickpea parcels with truffles. Good wine list, and charming atmosphere. Smart rather than rustic, but very friendly with charming waiters who are as welcoming to tourists as locals. We went back several times. Can be reasonably expensive as you... More

This was the food highlight of Florence everything about it cried authentic and it's packed with locals. We tried everything over the course of our stay and nothing disappointed. The focaccia was wonderfully light and slightly salty just like it should be and they have that typical art of true Italian eateries making the simple into an art form. They... More

The worker behind the pastry/bread area knew I was waiting to be served but ignored me and decided to help other locals before me. Thankfully, an Italian lady noticed what was happening and in Italian told her I'd been waiting and need her service. The worker had a bad attitude and gave me a difficult time. I told her the...

Our tour guide recommended this place for a light lunch. This is not a place that the tourists go. So, the food is true authentic florentine cuisine. We tried the focaccias and they were amazing. Nothing like the ones you buy in the United States. Flavorful, but at the same time they are very light. The cantinetta also has a... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
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.
