Florence is a wonderful city at day, but at night reveals a special charm.
The lighted monuments at night are amazing, but at the same time tourists can enjoy the vibrant nightlife that the Tuscan capital has to offer. The Medicean city has a very rich artistic and cultural heritage, to discover at day but also at night.
Florence, however, also offers plenty of entertainment with its many clubs, pubs and discos. The nights in Florence are always busy, you can simply stroll through its historic streets or spend a pleasant evening in a bar, then just go out to have dinner in one of the many open air restaurant to watch the wonderful monuments by moonlight, or simply visit the museums that often are open even at night.
The first thing to do if you want to admire Florence by night, whether you are a tourist or you just moved to Florence for a while, is to admire the beautiful view of the city from Piazzale Michelangelo, one of the most romantic spot in town, but also famous for its wonderful view.
If you’re searching for a place where to spend the evening, just stroll around the city center: almost all the touristy venues are located there. Just go around the Cathedral or close to other famous squares in town to find a nice place where to eat dinner or where to drink something with friends.
We also recommend to taste a glass of the best Chianti. Local wines definitely offer a pleasant help to those who want to spend a weekend in Florence. Also, if you want to live the Florentine nightlife, you can enter the bars, pubs and clubs without problem, because they often do not require the selection door. You can listen to live music or dance at the disco.
If you chose Florence as a destination for a relaxing weekend full of cultural entertainment, there are many alleys and street to be admired in the moonlight, but also a number of museums that you can see at night, such as the Uffizi Gallery (click here for one of the most amazing tours of this world-class museum)
Surely, it is advisable to watch the sunset on the Ponte Vecchio and stay there until the moon rises, and then enjoy the wonderful view. The Arno river is definitely beautiful both day and at night, but at the evening it gets a completely different atmosphere.
The mix of people of various zones of Florence, including students, workers and tourists, makes it a pleasure to walk the streets of the city, one of the best destinations where to spend an unforgettable evening with your partner.
Florence it’s a romantic city not only because of its architecture, but also because it preserves beautiful places giving you exceptional moments.
In the evening or at night, Florence gives you the possibility of walk back in time, maybe in the Boboli Gardens or around the typical streets of the city center. Palazzo Pitti is a true open air museum with sculptures and architectures, that should never be missed, and for those who want to see the city at night we recommend the prestigious terraces in front of churches and monuments such as the Forte Belvedere and San Miniato al Monte.
But if you don’t want to leave the city center, you can head up to the bar La Rinascente, where you can combine a great view, a tasty dinner and shopping.
