Perfectly positioned for people watch and about halfway between ponte vecchio and the leather market. Spritz and Bellini in the shade bliss :)

We just had a drink here after visiting Piazza Vecchio Museum. It is a good place to sit and watch what is going on around, although not cheap.

After a long day of fabulous shopping go to Gilli and have an espresso, an Aperol Spritz and some Tramezini. Feel like an Italian nobleman from the last century and look at the people ! Gilli is a Florentine institution.

Undoubtedly the meal I had was the best I had the whole time I was in Italy. I had the potato ravioli with homemade pesto, dried tomato and walnuts. It was amazing. I also had a wonderful Pimms cocktail to wash it down. It was...More

Nice location to sit and watch the crowd on the square, lots of food selections for both main courses and desserts. However, prices are extravagantly more too. Waiters are pretty attentive but are tending to too many tables to be without delay. Food is fair...More

A lovely white sauce with peas and ham over penne was tasty. 14 € , so it was not economical. Okay service ( it is in a very busy tourist area). The Caesar salad was enormous 12€ and very tasty. The wine selection is good,...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
