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.

Bar on top of the department store La Rinascente in the center, great view over Florence. To reach the bar/coffee place, be aware of last floor steep stairs.

Good coffee great view. Limited seats so be prepared to wait if you want a seat by the plaza. They also offer drinks as well. Would go again.

Very nice rooftop terrace at the top of the Rinascente department store. The drinks are pricey but the view is worth it. Would recommend for an aperitif for sure.

This is a (kinda) secret terrace in Florence. If you don't know about it you should -- it has a beautiful view of the Duomo. I've been in the morning for a cappucino and we were totally alone, and I've been in the afternoon for apperitivo (drinks and snacks) and we had to wait 20 minutes for a table. It's... More

So the drinks are pricy- 4.50 euro for cappuccino, 9 for a cocktail, but who cares, the drinks are good and the view is better. We did not have any food, but we did get complimentary chips when we were up there!

The place is very hide in side of a shopping. They have a good view of Florence and of one of main squares of there. The food is good, the wine was amazing! And the price is not expensive for that localization and view. I totally recommend!

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.
