Open Bar

Lounge in Boboli & San Miniato al Monte

Of course it's touristy given its prime location near Ponte Vecchio, but it's worth a pit stop nonetheless – preferably at aperitivo hour from 6.30pm to 9pm when chic Florentines sip cocktails, slurp oysters and enjoy the 'golden view' of the Arno swirling below their feet. Stand by the bar rather than sitting down to keep costs down.
