Hidden way from the crowds this restaurant really hit the spot. As you walk down the stairs you may feel intimidated by the sizes of the meat cuts, but there are plenty of delicious vegetarian options as well. The restaurant has a familiar, traditional feeling...More

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
