Many restaurants in Florence open at 11 am or earlier, although Italians rarely have lunch before 1 pm. However, many tourists like to eat earlier. The cuisine of the restaurants is differently long in the evening. Some restaurants close in Florence already at 21 o'clock, others after midnight.

The Mc Donalds at the main station is open 24 hours a day. Very long in the night, some snack bars of immigrants (kebab etc.) are open.Florenz

Opening times banks in Florence

Banks in Italy are open until 1 p.m.. Most branches open again in the afternoon, but very briefly (often only for one hour). In the tourist part of Florence there are some exchange offices that offer some bank services. These have much longer opening hours. Since the introduction of the Euro, there are of course far fewer exchange offices in Italy. Most tourists withdraw cash at ATMs.
