We had very limited time in Florence, so tried to find some really typical local place to experience the cousin. Occasionally we came to this Osteria. It was crowded and very noisy with tables very close to each other, so it was hard to talk....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

Hi Brittania, I know that they sell the vinegar for 15 Euro per bottle. It is absolutely delicious. Hope you get the chance to go there again and buy a bottle.
