This place introduced me to iced cappuccinos. You have to get one!! Obviously we ordered some pastries on the side too. It is pricey (10 just for the pastries) but it is a beautiful place to sit for a break from sightseeing

Went here for breakfast. The service was impeccable and the surroundings are grand. But the coffee was average and the food was disappointing.

This is hands down the best coffee place in Florence. It is also the best place to stop and sit for a drink in a lovely square and watch the world go by! Highly highly recommend!

The chocolate torte was OK but did taste nice and chocolaty. The chocolate cake had a hair in it and was very dry, the best part was the icing. The coffee was very strange in taste - weak for what was expected in Italy.

Duomo
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
