More Selfridges than Harrods; a large store for a small city with a spectacular rooftop cafe. Was being renovated on my visit in November 2018, sure to be worth a visit when complete. Particularly good womens’ fashion departments and home store on top floor. The...More

It ain’t all that. The view doesn’t justify 5€ for a cup of coffee and the service, while not horrible, is a bit snobby.

We did not go to the rooftop cafe which we were told had lovely views especially for sunsets. We went in to shop/escape the heat in the air-conditioning. The store had a decent selection of merchandise. One of our friends bought a lovely Burberry jacket...More

After the fantastic meals offered by the rooftop La Rinascente restaurant in Milan, we made sure to visit the La Rinascente in Florence. It's not a restaurant, and it would barely be considered a cafe. It's a few tables on a slab of concrete. The...More

A good place for a break between seeing the sights of Florence, but I wouldn’t rate the terrace cafe. Great views but very slow service and drinks over priced.

Well worth a visit in the late afternoon, to sit and take in the view in the Tuscan sunshine. It gets busy so you may have to wait for a table, and there can be a crowd arrive to take a picture with the Duomo...More

An Italian friend recommended that I go here to find the "Bialetti" moka coffee maker. A simple "Scusi" got the attention of the staff and after a simple explanation of how the coffee maker works, I was at the register to pay. The young lady...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
