Here is a selection of Florence’s best Party Streets of Florence:
VIA PIETRAPIANA – PIAZZA DE’ CIOMPI (SANT’AMBROGIO DISTRICT)
One of the coolest streets for outdoor partying in Florence is this year (2009) Via Pietrapiana/Piazza de’ Ciompi…the streets is short and there are only 2 bars Caffé Sant’Ambrogio and Plaz and 1 great place Teatro del Sale for both dinner and entertainment (in my opinion, in some special evenings, the best of the city)…these venues attract hundreds of florentines and foreigners every night, especially on Friday and Saturday night…we definitely recommend a visit to these places…
If you are lucky you can also find concerts and nice events under the characteristic “Loggia del Pesce” of Piazza de’ Ciompi (famous for its flea market) and almost every night you can find a quality show (music, theatre, dance, etc) at Teatro del Sale (where you can also eat great food at a reasonable price!). In front of Caffé Sant’Ambrogio you can enjoy a drink in a nice, typical, off the beaten road bar (Piazza Sant’Ambrogio) The atmosphere in the street is cool and colourful and the area is definitely safe.
Caffé Sant’Ambrogio and Plaz are open also in the morning for the breakfast. Caffé Sant’Ambrogio is recommended also for the “aperitivo“, from (around) 6 pm on…
VIA DE’ BENCI – PIAZZA SANTA CROCE (SANTA CROCE DISTRICT)
Moyo, Lochness, Kikuya, Red Garter, Osteria de’ Benci, Oibò, Australian Pub, William Pub…the coolest bars, pub and restaurants of Florence are located here….on Friday and Saturday the street is transformed in a great Party area, if you like having fun outdoors in a nice context you can’t miss this street! Definitely one of the trendiest of the city!
Moyo is recommended for its fine “aperitivo“…Osteria de’ Benci is a great place for a good Tuscan dinner before the long party nights….
