Cold rainy day in Florence and I had a severe sinus headache and non stop cough. Don't ask me what was in the drink they made especially for me. But, it worked within an hour

First, I went into here only because I needed my soaps. If I could purchase them online trust me I so would. It's hysterical the staff working. I understand that most of the clientele are "upper crust" I get it really I do but really?...More

A lot of the reviews on here appear to be for the original pharmacy in Florence, which is a completely different experience from the SMN location on Corso Rinascimento in Rome. Of course, the product is the same, but this is modern shop, not the...More

This is a very interesting pharmacy being that it dates back to 1612 and belonged to the church of Sant maria Novella. At that time the nuns made all the products. The selections are fabulous anywhere from perfumes, creams, soaps,sachets to natural medicines.The building is...More

Think of it like going to a museum and stepping back in time. I loved the fragrances. Quaint, old fashioned. A little haven in the middle of a bustling city. Even my macho husband could appreciate it.

We've visited this place many times, mainly to buy some of their wonderful potpourri. I usually don't care for the stuff, but they offer scents that really brighten your day and last for years if kept in the original bags. Highly recommended.

I found out about this pharmacy after reading an article about it on Town and Country. Since I didn't know much about their products, and because everything is in a clear glass cupboard, I didnt know where to begin. The menu is very helpful, but...More

I am in Rome every year, and I always go to this shop. They are pricey, but their stuff is amazing. I love the Frangipani perfume and anything Pomegranate (soaps, candles, bath salts, drawer satchets, etc.) They have a "menu" which lists all of their...More

I was so anger with unfriendly staffs. If you are available, you had better go and buy things in Florence. Don't expect any favour or kindness from staffs. You will be furious..... Just so poor you to visit thete.....

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
