Dating back to 1773, this indoor and outdoor café is centrally located on a large busy square, making it a perfect spot to drink, have a bite to eat and do some people-watching.

Yes I have not been around the world yet! But among the 22 Countries this place has the best Tiramisu in the world. If the taste, texture wasn’t enough for you, try sitting in front of the plaza where the vintage mary-go-round is placed. Look...More

Place is a landmark! Beautiful but stuffy. Go, take pictures, buy a coffee and feel the experience - use the bathroom, take more pictures and GO! Not, customer friendly.

Lovely spot right on the Piazza de la Republica to have a pastry and a coffee (delicious) or a G&T in the afternoon (also delicious).

Welcoming was mild, service was lazy, smile lost somewhere. The waiter took 15 minutes to clean the table and I had to ask twice. The hot chocolates were good but... It took us long time to pay. In the man closet, women were queueing. Really...More

If you want to sit down and enjoy a drink this will be fine, but you'll have to wait 20 minutes for the drink. It's such a shame as it is such a lovely location but the service is so poor and if you order...More

The food was dissent. The location in piazza di republica is excellent. The prices were rather high.

I've read a few reviews that criticize Gilli for service and prices...anyone traveling to a major tourist city and settling in the primo corner locale on a main square should expect to pay €5-7 for a cappuccino, but if you want sip your fresh squeezed...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
