Summer in Florence

An outdoor space with music and good food is the perfect setting for spending a typical Florentine summer evening. 

In the warm season, the lungarni (banks of the river Arno) are populated by lovely bars where you can enjoy the nightlife in Florence.

This article will present you with a selection of the best locations. 

Who said there's no beach in Florence? It would not be a real Florentine summer without the beach along the Arno. The Urban Beach in Florence offers events and evenings with music and street food, all made even more fascinating by the colours of the sunset that frame one of the most popular open spaces in the city. 

If you love good food, Molo 5 is the perfect alternative for you!

Kiosks with street food offer a wide selection ranging from pizza to seafood recipes. The large green space on the Lungarno is the perfect spot for spending warm evenings in the city. 

In Florence we call it "ciccia" and if you are a true lover of street food and in particular Chianina meat, the kiosks of the Toraia Food Truck on Lungarno del Tempio are perfect for you! You will have the opportunity to taste the luxury reinterpretation of street food, where attention to quality and tradition are the key ingredients. 

But that's not all, you can also try the aperitif overlooking the river on the Lungarno Colombo at Le Vele or Manifattura Tabacchi, where food and live music will make the evening even more fun. 

Do you want to relax in the centre of Florence but be on a beach with a Cuban vibe? If the answer is yes, check out the new Havana500 bar, where in addition to aperitifs and DJ sets, you can enjoy the experience of sailing on the Arno. 

In the summer season, then, there are excellent nightlife options to suit all tastes. Follow our tips and enjoy the real Summer in Florence!
