One of the best connected streets in the heart of Florence, full of unique historical landmarks, leather stores, restaurants and hidden gems
If you find yourself at the Duomo and you want to continue exploring deeper into the Renaissance capital, you should head out to the end of the Piazza and start your way down Via del Proconsolo. Although busy, especially at day time, you’ll soon find out why we love this street so much. Great dinner spots, well-connected, good leather shops, an astonishing cultural offer and more…
Wether you decide to finish your stroll with a nice 5 euro aperitivo over the steps of Zeffirelli, or with a dinner at one of the several restaurants that offer a main course + side dish + wine menu, we are sure you will have loved the experience of walking around one of Florence’s most historical streets.
Pro tip: Via del Proconsolo is crossed by several streets that take you to other main hotspots. Via del Corso to the right will lead you straight to the spirited Piazza della Repubblica, and Borgo degli Albizi to the left, takes you to another lively square, Piazza San Pier Maggiore. Further down, Via dell’Anguillara is perfect for night life and it gets you right into the heart of Piazza Santa Croce. Also, there is an easy short access to the iconic Piazza della Signoria through Via deli Gondi.
