Espresso and Townscape on a Florence penthouse!
Coffee to Italians is a 'rite' a life-preserving high-priority. So, instead of drinking it on the fly, why not relish it on a penthouse gazing at the 'historical' townscape of Florence? Chance offered by "La Terrazza Cafe" of "La Rinascente" palace in the center of Florence, a few steps away from the Duomo cathedral.
To get to the top, we are bound to move around the store along the escalators or get the elevator and make a final flight of stairs. What this café has to offer? In addition to coffee, on lunchtime a menu including pasta, dishes of the day, caprese salad, nicoise with tuna, boiled egg and olives, Greek(tzatziki) with cucumber, feta cheese and black olives, raw meat and fish, sandwich with fresh ingredients and seasonal produce. You can also enjoy a wide range of appetizers, cocktails and drinks. Store (hence café) opening hours are from Monday to Saturday 9:00 to 21:00 and Sunday 10:30 to 20:00.
