There are approximately 180 Buchette del Vino or Wine Windows scattered throughout the nieghbourhoods of Florence.
In the plague of the 17th century, 'fiaschi' or glasses of wine were served through these tiny holes in the walls of many noble palaces to reduce the risk of infection.
During the lockdowns of 2020, this ancient local custom was revived with many bars and restaurants selling glasses of wine through these little windows.
Popular with tourists, many Buchette del Vino have long queues of eager customers waiting for a chilled glass of wine, Prosecco, Spritz or Limoncello.
