Our last night in Florence and we happened upon Pentola Dell'Oro as we wandered the narrow streets, seemingly quiet after the bustle of the early hours. The Osteria lights beckoned us to enter the open doors. We were so glad we found this lovely spot....More

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
