La Terrazza Lounge Bar

la-terrazza-lounge-bar

Perched in the sky above Hotel Continentale lies La Terrazza, offering one of Florence’s best panoramic views. The simple décor and hundreds of pillows makes for a very cozy atmosphere, best enjoyed with your loved ones.

Must Try Drinks: Prosecco, a Northern Italian wine, is a great option for the Lounge bar. The sparkling wine is a cheaper and debatably better alternative to champagne. The main difference between the two is that Prosecco is fermented in stainless steal tanks, as opposed to the traditional wooden barrels. Regardless of how its made, it’s perfect for any romantic occasion, as you will experience here.
