The area surrounding the Duomo, Florence‘s magnificent cathedral, and the Piazza della Signoria is filled with astonishing architecture, beautiful history and delicious restaurants. Discover the best restaurants in Florence’s most beautiful piazzas here.
This cafe, one of the oldest in Florence, is situated in the Piazza della Signoria. Rivoire oozes class and elegance and is known in Florence for its delicious artisanal chocolate. The Tarta del Nonno (Grandpa’s Cake), a chocolate-filled cake with almonds sprinkled on top, is the best you will find in Florence, or indeed Italy. During the winter months visitors can enjoy the lush hot chocolate while admiring the beautiful Palazzo della Signoria, which gives its name to the Piazza; in summer travelers can sip on a refreshing cocktail or glass of wine and snack on one of their tasty dishes.
Mr. Pizza has a privileged location, with beautiful views of the side of Florence’s majestic Duomo. Visitors can sit in their terrace or inside and enjoy a delicious panini or pizza in one of the most beautiful settings in Florence, for a very affordable price. Travelers who are in a rush but still want to taste some traditional Neapolitan pizzas can order them to go. They also serve pasta, salads and healthy vegetable or soy hamburgers.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination.
