We came here for lunch after our early morning Duomo tour. All of our dishes were delicious. The pasta was so fresh. The prosciutto was cut fresh and was to die for.

The food was pretty good, but because of the condition of the bathroom, I can’t rate this place any higher than 1 Star. If they can’t have better bathrooms, it makes me wonder about the condition and cleanliness of their kitchen. I went to use...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city
