Having arrived in Firenze by train a couple of hours earlier, settled into a hostel (laundry & fresh clothes, ah!), and seen the amazing Duomo briefly (illuminated at night), I was wondering around the streets between the Duomo and the hostel for some while. For a Friday night, around 8-9 pm, it was very quiet, I thought. I saw many restaurants (pizzerias and trattorias) with people inside, but only one or two bars, which looked like they're just closing. And this was right in the middle of the city, weekend starting! Granted, it was November and not very warm outside, but come on.
Where are all the bars, all the people, in Florence on a weekend night?
Is there any major concentration of nightlife spots?
(Show it on the map, please?)
