Florence is the historical gem of Italy, with part of its town center declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It was a center for trade and finance in medieval times and the birthplace of the Renaissance movement. With stunning scenery and unparalleled panoramas, here’s our guide to some of the best bars from which to admire the views.
This spot offers a spectacular rooftop panorama in a glass-enclosed garden, where you can enjoy a special cocktail at the end of a tiring day.
