Found this hotel recommended in the Michelin Guide. Was looking for an "elegant" place to have dinner with some distant relatives that would be able to appreciate it. This place seemed to fit the bill on paper. In practice, it vastly exceeded my high expectations....More

Extremely enjoyable place for a cosy bite. Lovely chicken, and lovely Franciacorta. The hazelnut icecream was the best I have ever had. The service is efficient and understated. Lovely air conditioning. Shame for the toilets, that were in a poor shape and not particularly clean....More

Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.

brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni

enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

With a summer terrace that overlooks the Piazza Strozzi, and a strong interior which features bright orange walls, chandeliers, silk tablecloths and art nouveau detailing ��� Hosteria Bibendum is renowned for its down-to-earth Tuscan cuisine with a contemporary twist. Ideal for business lunches, cocktail parties and candlelit dinners, the menu at Hostaria Bibendum includes favourites such as the seafood and basil risotto, and the entrec��te steak pan-fried with olives and anchovies served with mustard.
