Nightlife in Florence probably starts in the area of Sant’Ambrogio thanks to the many restaurants and cafès makes it a perfect starting point for an after dinner drink before delving in the city center.

You can start your evening with an aperitif at the famous Cafè Sant’Ambrogio!

In front of the church of Sant’Ambrogio gets very active from Aperitif till late at night, it’s a large and crowded get together especially on weekends, if you really want to enjoy I  suggest you to go there before dinner, for a great aperitif in spring, possibly!
