Stay in Florence means eat good food and experience some of the best museums of the world all in 2 km squared. Isn’t it?

Let’s start with wine bars and cafes in the lovely city of Florence, Italy! In Italy bars are literally on every corner. Do not confuse them with the classic American bars. Italian bars (or cafes) serve ‘cafe’, cappuccinos, hot chocolates, tea, light snacks and aperitifs. We recommend in particular 2 historic places.

The Gilli which is a wine bar and restaurant and since 1733 it has been serving also all kinds of treats and light meals.. (Piazza della Repubblica,ph: +39 055 213 896). And just in front the Giubbe Rosse CafË where you can have brunch from 9Ä or a complete menu from 18Ä ( Piazza della Repubblica 13/14; ph: +39 055 212 280).

Tip: a coffee is way too cheaper (up to 1Ä) at the counter that at your sit at the table. In this way you can enjoy a good coffee-break in fantastic places without spending a fortune!

Once stuffed with an excellent Italian Breakfast with cappuccino and brioche you are ready to visit the Uffizi Museum, probably the reason why you got your flight ticket to Florence!

Palazzo Vecchio (Uffizi) is an amazing palace set just around Piazza della Signoria, once the centre of political power and city life. Just behind there is the spectacular Ponte Vecchio housing numerous antique and modern jewellery shops and the Signoria open arched gallery

In the Uffizi Gallery you can enjoy Italian masterpieces from Medieval period to Modern. Just to give you some masteri names: you will be meeting Leonardo, Michelangelo, Botticelli and Caravaggio.
