The Rinascente is located in the heart of Piazza della Republica, and is 5 stories high. On the top of the roof is a nice little bar that serves drinks. I like to go there in the late afternoon when the sun is starting to set, and the breezes start to blow, and look down into the piazza. From this view, you can see the rooftops of Florence and the hills of Tuscany. Below is the view of the Piazza where I can spy on the men are usually out talking to the women tourists.
If you come to Florence, let’s plan on having a glass of wine there, for a "birds eye" view of the piazza!
