We actually had trouble finding a real bar in many Italian cities, so we were so happy when we found REX. They had great cocktails at reasonable prices. If you just want to sit around and talk/drink, this is the place!

We love Rex. Unique decor, great atmosphere, and high-quality cocktails. It's great for a few relaxed drinks or a more lively social atmosphere later at night. 10/10

Where the cool kids seemed to hang out in Florence, this was more like a bar in the typical sense than we normally saw in Italy. The bartender knew what he was doing, and had some interesting drink specials. Service friendly and attentive until it...More

The prices in Venice can be ridiculous at times. Rex was reasonably priced plenty of out door seating and a fabulous square view. The food was tasty and prompt and we would recommend it to anyone.

Very good atmosphere and friendly staff. Worth more than a visit. The barman has quite a fantasy when it comes to cocktails... a great surprise in the center of Florence. I wish we had such a bar in Zurich...

Artfully done, great complimentary buffet. Ideal place for pre-dinner drinks, across the street from Touch restaurant

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
