There are some cities that just scream: “have a cocktail!” and as far as we’re concerned Florence is definitely one of them.

You’ll have plenty packed in to your time here with so much art and culture to take in, not to mention all the shopping on offer, so it only seems right to spend an evening relaxing with a few refreshing spritz, Negronis or something even more exotic. And if you’re looking to truly immerse yourself in the local cocktail flavors, adding one of our Florence food tours to your itinerary comes highly recommended.

We asked our tour guide in Florence, Gaia, for her top five places to indulge in a bit of luxury.
