Enjoy an Aperitivo

Aperitivio is a daily ritual that has been finessed into an art form within Florence’s streets. Literally meaning ‘to open’, this pre-dinner experience is held before a main meal, and was originally designed to stimulate the appetite for what lay ahead, with a drink and snack generally featuring. Nowadays, the aperitivo is still important, although it has become somewhat of a social date, allowing you to catch up with friends and family over some good wine and delicious, salty snacks.

Today, many of Florence’s finest bars and restaurants play host to this tradition, and a culture has emerged for the terrace aperitivo, where guests can graze in style to the backdrop of stupendous views over the Florentine rooftops. Many hotels offer this experience, but make sure you book in advance, as these sessions are hugely popular among tourists and locals alike.
