Golden View Open Bar, Florence
I didn't catch the name of this bar and I don't think its name could be so decisive to know it. The bar is situated right on the right side of the River Arno and opposite to Ponte Vecchio, offering small and cosy terrace ideal for people watching. Those who are curious characters wont miss it, lol.
As you walk over the Ponte Vecchio from the Piazza della Signoria, turn left into the Via dei Bardi and about 40 metres along the street you will find the Open Bar. If you go mid-afternoon, you may be able to find a table at the window, with a view over the river Arno and the Ponte Vecchio. Order a bottle of Montepulciano d'Abruzzo and a plate of cheese and salami. In the evening you are unlikely to get a window table, but you may get live jazz.
