Went here in June. We saw this cafe/restaurant while we were on Duomo. We did have to wait for about 5-10 minutes (the terrace is not that big), but got a table with the best view of Duomo. Prices are ok,a little bit high because of the location, but if you order drinks, you get a nice tableau with some... More

Great views of the Duomo and city of Florence while sipping wine and snacking. The menu appears to be for lunch but has a variety of mixed drinks, beers and wines. Good selection for alcohol, limited on food selection though.

If you crave an aperitivo with your sunset in Florence, go to La Rinascente--yes, the department store, on Piazza della Repubblica. Go directly up to the top floor and you’ll find a little rooftop café/bar with great views called Caffe La Terrazza. They offer light fare and a full bar. What could be better than a little snack, a sparkling... More

Situated on the roof of a department store, take the lift as high as you can, then walk over the shop floor before taking some steps leading to the bar. The view, especially of the Doumo is superb. Okay, the drinks are not cheap, 9 euro for a cocktail and 7 euro for a fairly small beer, but as a... More

The caffe is on top of a department store and it has a breathtaking view of Florence. The roof terrace is small but if you wait a few minutes, it is worth it. We had pasta and salad and the food was very good and at reasonable prices.

Amazing cafe on the top of La Rinascente. Ask to be seated on the rooftop to enjoy the amazing views. This is the main reason to come. The cappuccino was great.

The Caffe is on the roof of the department store la Rinascente on Piazza della Repubblica. The roof terrace is quite small but if you are lucky enough to get a table the views are amazing. We had beer and wine which came with some complimentary snacks. Be prepared to be surrounded by people who have come up just to... More

Great place to hang out and watch the piazza below. The place is found on top of the retail store on 5th floor in Piazza Repubblica. The food is just ok and can get quite crowded around lunch time.

My husband and I found this place 15 years ago on our honeymoon and HAD to go back! It sits atop the Reniscente department store and has fabulous views of the duomo. Great for photographs, especially in the late afternoon. Great wine list and they give you plenty of munchies to snack on while you are sipping.

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.
