One of historical places in Venice. The oldest coffeehouse in the world. Located in St. Mark’s Square Caffè Florian has become one of the city symbols. Opened on December 29th 1720 by Floriano Francesconi under the name “alla Venezia Trionfante”, or Triumphant Venice, it soon became known by its patrons as “Florian’s”, the most famous “bottega da caffè” (café) of the day frequented by important people as D’annunzio, Goldoni or Casanova.
Caffé Florian is the place where you can feel history, listen to the orchestra, enjoy the view and service. We choose to visit a coffeehouse during morning hours. But already it was crowded inside. There were people who were talking a lot about art, also there was a lot of Italians and tourists. Definitely you can feel the elegance and the exclusivity in this place. You can experience “Made in Italy” for 100%. Choose your expensive coffee and relax. Enjoy artistic walls and ceilings, people around you and orchestra. Of course aura, interior, chic waiters in white jackets and gloves and music are worth the price. The Coffee was delicious, the salads were fresh (reputable portion) and macaroons were with brittle top and succulent filling. Only not so fancy thing in this place is long waiting to get in the restroom. It took about ten minutes. In a place like this you accept everything perfect. In any case, this is the place you need to visit, but if you want to save money, we recommend passing through this place.
