Well worth the Star. Food was carefully presented and explained at table. Service was excellent. Wine pairing provided for each dish. Chef Fillipo takes you through a wonderful journey of flavor profiles. From the aperitifs to the dessert you get a well balanced dish. Subtle...More

We walked 1/2 mile to take in this highly rated gelato joint & were informed by several nearby shop owners that Marco Ottaviano II Gelato Gourmet had CLOSED. We discovered other delightful places as gelato is King in Florence.

I wish we had the opportunity to try Marcos based on all the great reviews. But they don't have times posted on when they are opened. Like other travelers, we tried three times on three different days, and they were closed.

I've lived in Florence for over a year now, so I've tried quite a few gelaterias, but this one is simply the best! I adore the atmosphere, the staff, and most importantly - gelato! Very natural, and flavours to fit everyone. My favourites - strawberry...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
