We had a welcome break on a very hot day last week and decided to visit Gilli which we had last eaten in in 2004. Still the same and not cheap but an attractive venue. The service, cold beer and wine were excellent but the...More

In the morning, take your morning coffee at the bar, as the Fiorentini do. Nice pastries as well. Atmosphere is full of grandeur. Great place.

We just had a drink here after visiting Piazza Vecchio Museum. It is a good place to sit and watch what is going on around, although not cheap.

After a long day of fabulous shopping go to Gilli and have an espresso, an Aperol Spritz and some Tramezini. Feel like an Italian nobleman from the last century and look at the people ! Gilli is a Florentine institution.

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
