Decent little back street bar. No air con but nice little breeze, standard euro prices but the wine and beers are OK...good for a stop when the afternoon heat kicks in.

Find a different place to drink. Grey Goose and Tonic for €12? If you enjoy getting ripped off, the friendly staff here will take care of it professionally.

This is a great place to stop for a beer or three. They have games, good music, and a friendly environment. I met several friendly locals here. They also have a great selection of wine and beer.

Ok, this bar does not have air conditioning, and the bar tender was rude. He could have cared less if we were there or not. The bathroom wasn't working either. Not going back.

After dinner one evening we were walking Florence and stumbled upon this great pub to watch one of the Euro tournament games. Great Irish/English pub to enjoy a beer and a football game.

Not many bars to found in downtown. This is one a few places to match the match and have a drink. Only a few wines. Few beers on tap and many spirits.
