So you're walking down the streets of Florence, on your left you've got Palazzo Signoria, the center of Florentine Medici power. Right in front of you, one of the wonders of Florence, you've seen it...
 Everyone loves some good wine, especially when you’re abroad in Tuscany, and if you’ve got some days off from your courses, why not celebrate and let off some steam with your friends? But you also know...
So you’ve spent the day soaking up the beautiful culture Florence has to offer but hasn’t all that walking made you hungry? Well, StudentsVille.it to the rescue! Ever heard of Mercato San Lorenzo (San Lorenzo Market) or the Mercato Centrale (Central Market)?

So you’re in Florence. A most beautiful city, full of art and history. Feeling homesick? - perhaps not, but whether you are or not you could still visit an unexpected hidden Teashop just outside the centre of Florence. Well, centre if you’re British or center if you’re American. But you know what I mean. It’s not a long walk, around 20 minutes from the centre. However, if your legs are not up to it then you can get to it by bus number 3, 6 or 20. The area is called San Salvi named after the church San Michele a San Salvi, which was built in the 11th century and is not far from the Campo di Marte Station. Back to the Tearoom then in Via Carlo Poma, 7/9r, Florence.
