The Manager/Bartenderwas knowledgeable and very talented, well able to balance a cocktail and suit the customers taste. Wonderful to see and taste Italian Gin’s, great drinks menu and drinks selection. The vibe is true to the name, with captivating paintings and playful design.

Found this bar whilst walking back to our hotel. It has a really intimate, cosy vibe so is good for late night cocktails. You could help yourself to crisps and nuts too to accompany your drinks which was nice.

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
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
