Hidden away in a side street. So helpful with a diet. Everything was freshly cooked and delicious. Tuscany wines were well recommended. We paid 79 euros including wine and coffee. Great value. Seek it out and enjoy.

come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
