We stopped in for a coffee and snack. The pastries were tasty, coffee was nice, price on par for Florence. Everyone seems to stop here - from tourists to locals. A perfect spot to sip espresso and people-watch as the world goes by.

Santa Maria Novella

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
