day or night!
Le Murate Caffè Letterario 8
Why locals love it
Le Murate is one of the coolest local spots in the city, housed in an old prison complex. They regularly host concerts, lectures and events with a socially conscious spin (often in collaboration with the nearby Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights).
Why you should visit it
Location, location, location! The cafe is within Florence's historic center but part of a stretch of via Ghibellina where tourists rarely pass. Architecturally, the historic complex is unlike anything else you'll see in Florence. By day, get comfortable on one of their couches with coffee & reading material; by night, enjoy live music outdoors.
Check their site to see what events are coming up! Expect everything from concerts to book presentations to radio show recordings.
