CAFE' GILLI: Came into being as for back as 1733 as a "fancy breads" shop in Via Calzaiuoli; it then gradually perfected some very special delicacies. Half way through the 19th century a new branch opened in Via degli Speziali, a cafè and pastry-shop which also servid absinths and choice sweet wine. In 1910 it was transferred to Piazza Vittorio Emanuele (now Piazza Repubblica) where we still find it today after over 250 years. CAFE' PASZKOWSKI: For a refined personality, for those who know how to choose the best, for a unique fastry shop, rich in tradition, as an antique "Beer Factory", appreciated both for its long-drinks and class, where for any special moment one can find that atmosphere t at only "Caffe Paszkowski" can create.

Medieval Florence was enclosed in curtain walls that contained today's historical center. In the last century, restructuring brought the city to be the capital of the Kingdom of Italy and the city walls were demolished, with the exclusion of the gates.The entire line on the right bank of the Arno was replaced with the actual Avenues of circumrotation. The part of city situated on the left bank of the river Arno, called 'Oltrarno', still has notable traces of the city walls. Today the goal of restructuring will bring the reopening of some lines of the watch walk, from which it will be possible to enjoy a new vision of the historical beauties of the city.
Via dei Biffi is a tiny little street 100 meters from the Duomo, so small it’s almost unnoticeable, nestled between Via Ricasoli and Via Martelli.It’s really little more than a passageway between the two larger, crowded streets of the city center.
