A Royal CaféSituated on the ground floor of the Palazzina Reale, adjacent to the Florence train station, this café makes it easy to grab a coffee before you hop on your train. The bar—in a long, elegant room with sky-high ceilings and modern fixtures—is flooded with light and retains many of the original architectural details of the palace that once served as the Florentine home of the Italian royal family. The train station itself, with its modernist lines (and great typography on signage), warrants a little tour before departure time.
