Some of the best views in town can be enjoyed near the historic center of Florence, from the rooftop cafe of the “Rinascente” department store.

The cafe generally keeps the same hours as the store, which means that you will find this viewpoint open nearly every day, including Sundays. Make your way up the narrow stairways to the Caffé La Terrazza and you will be rewarded with particularly stunning views of the Duomo, Piazza della Repubblica and surroundings.

The terrace is relatively small so you may find yourself waiting for a place to sit on a nice day.

We would certainly say that the view makes the wait worth your while and if you are one who is very interested in shopping while in Florence, there are worse places to wait than in a department store! In addition to the coffee (most economic option), the cafe offers light lunches and a wide variety of aperitifs and cocktails in surroundings that are hard to beat.
