Florence in August?

Thank you all for your replies! I will print this thread and keep it handy. I plan on day-tripping to Lucca (haven't been there in years) and either Viareggio or Forte dei Marmi for a beach day. Possibly even Cinque Terre.

Florence in August?

Hello fellow Italophiles,

I have been traveling to Italy 1-2X per year for the past several years. While Florence is always a stop, I have never been there in August.

I know that August is vacation time for Italians, and I plan on hitting the beach towns like Viareggio where there will be plenty to do.

To that end, I'd love any suggestions you might offer for restaurants that you know will be open in August that are recommended, in Florence specifically, but even in Viareggio/Portofino/Cinque Terre...

Cafes/bars/pizzerias/trattorias...all suggestions for where to eat/drink in August are welcomed!

Grazie mille in advance!
