1 Piazza della Repubblica , La Rinascente
Florence , Italy

Situated atop La Rinascente, a four-story department store on the edge of Piazza della Repubblica, Terrazza is a small, open-air rooftop café with about a dozen tables. The menu is reasonably priced and includes coffee, tea, wine, and light snacks such as panini and pastries. However, the real draw is the panoramic view of the city, which includes the nearby Duomo and the Giardino di Boboli (Boboli Gardens). Because of its lofty location, the café remains relatively undiscovered and, therefore, quiet. It’s open only during store hours (10 a.m. until 9 p.m. most days).
