Very nice place to sit and relax with a cute cheap cafe with many tables. The cafe is on the second floor where you can see a nice view of the Duomo and the city.

What's not to love about Bibliotheca Oblate? Built in an old convent, Duomo views, wine and beer available at the rooftop cafe, and all other services a library has to offer. Need to get some work done and looking for an atmosphere to motivate and...More

If you are looking for tranquil space for a snack look no further. Very close to the centre of Florence yet very peaceful. A good selection of basic snacks and drink's at very reasonable prices.

As its off the busy areas you get great value. Sit at the set tables and you get table service with limited menu but still good value. Or buy at the cafe counter and sit at a free unset table for very good value.

The Biblioteca delle Oblate is a library located on the Via dell'Orirolo in Florence. A functioning library where you still see students going to read. Nice location with an eatery on top with cool vies of the Duomo

This library is full of students studying, but it is also good for tourists who are interested in the history of the building, sitting quietly in the cloisters and getting a close view of Brunelleschi's dome from the top floor. There is a small cafe...More

Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
