A little gem of a bar for locals and tourists. Great selection of beers, great music and a great atmosphere. Murphy’s Irish Stout spot on. Popped in a few times while in Florence sightseeing.

All U2 puns aside, this is a great spot. Great beer selection and reasonably priced drinks. Staff is friendly and the music was great. If you’re in Florence, this is a great place to grab a few pints and enjoy the day.

Really cool bar with a huge selection of craft beers from around the world. We popped in after trudging around Florence and were gasping for a pint; it certainly met our needs and more.

Very enthusiastic and slightly crazy bar lady encouraged us to try before you buy. We settled on 3 glasses.(0.4L is their standard size, so 70% of a pint.) The Moretti Rosso, a dark bruin style ale, and a hoppy pale. Generally they’re about €5 a...More

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
