Biblioteca delle Oblate - Things To Do in Florence - LikeALocal Guide

Why locals love it?

This isn't just a place to hit the books. The Oblate regularly hosts events and lectures, and the cafe and its surrounding terrace is a favorite hangout spot for Italian students and locals of all ages (with a view like none in any library you've ever seen!)

Why you should visit it

If you need to get some work done, read Italian newspapers or books, or just want to escape the city chaos and hang out somewhere quiet, obviously the interior of the library is ideal. But out on the open terrace, which looks out on Brunelleschi's dome, you can enjoy a meal, a coffee, or an aperitivo—and no one will boot you out!
