The Best Drink Deals in Florence

Share This Post

Drinking in the city center of Florence can get expensive, and though most people here are on vacation, breaking the bank entirely usually isn't an option.  Need to know the low-down on drink specials?  Here is a list of my top 5 places to go for deals in Florence!

Aperitivo at Ganzo, FUA's  Student-Operated Restaurant

img_9054Every Wednesday at 6 some of the best aperitivo in town, at the best price, is put on by the students of Florence University of the Arts.  Culinary students cook, and the hospitality and management students serve.  Entrance is only €5, which includes a cocktail or wine, and drinks after that are only €5 each.  The food keeps coming until around 10 or 11, and there are plenty of different options.  The bartender is one of the best mixologists I've ever had, and the environment is very friendly.  Sit inside at a booths, or outside in the patio lounge area.  Either way is sure to be a good time.

Free Shots at Lion's Fountain and Uncle Jimmy's
