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.
