Stopped here for a quick pint and enjoyed the casual Irish pub atmosphere. A lot of great selection of beer and liquor and friendly service make this a great spot to visit.

Find an Irish bar and you'll find English speakers. The bar was packed inside and on the street until last call. Mostly college age through grad student aged Americans. They have a huge selection of beers light to dark for everyone in your group! Every...More

Definitely caters to the US students studying abroad in Florence. Hundreds of college T-Shirts cover the ceiling and walls and signing them is encouraged. Shots and drinks are named after dozens of US colleges and universities. Only downside is the bathroom: it is shared by...More

Came into this bar to cool down on one of the hottest days ever in Florence. Looks like a reasonable bar from the outside but a pint and a Diet Coke set us back €9 which seems steep! Also quite a lot of flies inside....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
