Italian Coffee at its Best: Café Stops on Your Florence Tour

Travel & Tourism
Italians consider their coffee to be sacred. From downing quick espresso shots by the bar, to savouring a morning cappuccino in an artisan coffeehouse, there are plenty of options for fulfilling that coffee craving.

With chic cafés galore, if you are heading to Florence you will want to know the best places in which to partake in the morning coffee ritual. Read on for our shortlist of the best. Florence tourists—enjoy!

Drinking Caffè Like an Italian

In the Italian tradition, coffee-drinking is something you do while standing up at the bar. Part of the reason for this is that Italians love to stay on their feet and socialise, but the other reason is that you will pay more to sit down.

Join the huddle if you want a quick ‘pick me up’, but consider paying a little extra for a seat if you’d like to savour your brew.

How and What to Order

There is also an art to ordering your drinks. Ask for cappuccino after breakfast, and eyebrows will be raised.

Americanos are also out of the question – Italians are very particular about their favourite brew, and consider the filter coffee popular in the US and the UK to be “dirty water” (acqua sporca).

My recommendation would be to order:

A caffè lungo. This is just as strong but twice as ‘long’ as an espresso. A cappuccino senza schiuma, which is similar in taste to a flat white. A latte macchiato. Don’t fall for the false friend ‘latte’, which in Italian just means milk! If you want a generously milky cuppa, ask for a latte macchiato.

Caffè Concerto Paszowski

Paszowski has been a go-to in the Florentine coffee scene since 1903. Its central location at Piazza della Repubblica means that it is easy to find and constantly buzzing with life.

The décor is extremely chic. Chandeliers adorn the ceilings and the dark wooden embellishments of the furniture ooze class.

Make sure to try the espresso, as well as one of the delicious freshly baked pastries – they truly are some of the best. Florence tours often stop off at the square, so you should get a chance to visit en route.

Il Caffè del Verone

If you would like a stunning rooftop view to accompany your brew, head to Il Caffè del Verone.

The traditional brews and Tuscan dishes here are some of the city's best. Florence tours may well include a visit, as tourists exploring on their own often miss out on it because they don’t realise you can access the café without buying a ticket to the museum.

Ditta Artigianale

For a wonderful modern coffeehouse experience, make your way to Ditta Artigianale. The coffee-making here is treated as a form of art.

With machines that look like they belong in scientific labs and a wide range of hand-picked and slow-brewed options, the shop may feel out of place in traditional Italy. But, the locals have been won over by Ditta’s contemporary, yet delicious approach. The café has a reputation for making some of the best brews around.

This is just a small selection of cafés in Florence that are worth visiting. You could spend all your time going from place to place drinking espresso and still have more places to try!

The best Florence tours will undoubtedly include a stop at a local café. Make sure to book with a reputable tour company when planning your trip – having a local guide show you around and introduce you to the caffè culture will really enhance your experience.
