The cafe was so adorable, the coffee was excellent, I ended up ordering two! The muffins were amazing as well. Unfortunately, I tried this place on my last day in Florence, otherwise, I would go again!

Chiaroscuro is a charming place to have a cup of coffee or tea and rest your tired feet when in Centro Florence.

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

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
