A total insider spot normally overrun by students, this café of the public library, Biblioteca delle Oblate has one of Florence’s best perches from which to view the famous cupola. Situated in a Renaissance palazzo that dates to the late 13th century, the Biblioteca has become a favorite hangout; it’s one of the few places that’s open late (until midnight every day), offers free Wi-Fi and features a serene setting around a green courtyard. But visitors who enjoy blending with a local scene should seek out the Caffetteria delle Oblate on the top floor, housed in a glass-enclosed room with colorful chairs and tables, as well as stunning views of the Duomo. There are nightly aperitifs, special events like music performances and readings, plus a light menu throughout the day. If you are touring the Duomo area and need a local spot for a quick break away from the crowds, the Caffetteria delle Oblate is a fabulous option.
