San Lorenzo’s lively merchants shout out from behind stalls with an array of products in one of the most traditional neighborhoods in Florence. Different ethnic groups join together in the large outdoor market of San Lorenzo and in the Central Market, a vast multi-floored building. Visitors are bound to fall in love with this area and in particular, with its variety of food, especially those focusing on Florentine dishes as well as international selections. Nobody leaves San Lorenzo without a shopping bag in hand or with an empty stomach.

"Must See While In Florence"
reviewed yesterday by Evelyn C
Whether or not you intend to buy you should walk through the central market and just take a look at all the items available. I always purchase balsamic vinegar, dried tomatoes, and tomato paste here to take home. Better priced than in shops.
A stately entrance designed by Michelangelo is followed by a reading room that feels like a chapel, the light on both sides is filtered through numerous stainglass windows bearing the Medicci coat of arms. The books and manuscripts on display are stunning. How can one not feel moved by a illuminated manuscript of Dante’s Divine Comedy?
Unfortunately not all the top restaurants deserve their spot, as i beleive there are some restaurants that lower in rating but much more better in terms of meals and service.
This place is average, with average stuff. They have tasty seafood pasta and white house wine.
Prices are reasonable.

"A great lunch"

Picked at random as there are so many to choose from. Its just a little way from the Duomo area so a tiny bit quieter. Price and selection good, and the pappardelle was cooked to Italian al dente. Finished off with pannacotta which was lovely. Didn't know there was free wi-fi till near the end - but make use of...
Very nice room that appears to have been recently renovated, with a unique bathroom setup of two toilet/sink areas with a see-through shower in between. Our room also had a half double-door window that opened up to an interior open space – no view to the outside – only other windows. First-class accommodations, but I would have preferred at least...
The best experience we could have ever hoped for! The staff is outstanding and go out of their way to make your stay memorable. Giovanni, Karen, Leha, Malvina and everyone working there, made us feel so welcome from the moment we arrived.
Fantastic rooms, great location, and wonderful food!
I would not hesitate to stay there again.

We have been to Il Guelfo Bianco on several occasions and have enjoyed them all as much as our recent weekend. The staff are friendly and helpful, the beds comfortable with crisp bedlinen. Breakfast is good and the coffee delicious.
My fiancé and I stayed here for three nights on our two-week trip through Italy this past September. We had a very lovely stay here, though the biggest downfall was the bed being a bit uncomfortable. No breakfast on site but plenty of nearby cafés for coffee or a quick bite. The hosts were very friendly and gave lots of...
