I visited this cafe for breakfast before sadly leaving Florence Just a pot of tea and a croissant seated facing Piazza della Repubblica. It was a sunny day, magical. A must for everyone's bucket list.

Comfortable, excellent service, not too crowded. Had both the expresso and Earl Grey tea - both excellent. The selection of four small pastries was just right with top notch Creme Patisserie!

Having craved a decent cup of tea whilst visiting Florence we decided to go to Caffe Gilli. This is an upmarket Caffe and although the prices are not cheap, well worth a visit for a treat.

The Espresso is so good in this place, always crowded, the service is not good, I strongly recommend to drink your coffee on the bar, do not sit down, it is cheaper by this way.

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
