Franci apt is in the MOST beautiful neighborhood of Florence. Italo Calvino wrote, “The city does not tell its past, but contains it like the lines of a hand, written in the corners of the streets, the gratings of the windows, the banisters of the steps, the antennae of the lightning rods, the poles of the flags, every segment marked in turn with scratches, indentations, scrolls.” San Lorenzo is all this and more: you can breathe it every corner, even the hidden ones. A medley of faces and cultures, flavours and fragrances lend a contemporary feel to the renaissance aura that tells of its Medici heritage that you can see everywhere: in the history, beauty, nobility and elegant aura of the place - the Cappella dei Principi (Princes’ Chapel), second only to the taller cathedral dome. - the Basilica di San Lorenzo (Saint Lawrence Basilica). - the Biblioteca Laurenziana (Laurentian Library). Everything is original here, from the limewood ceiling engraved by Giovan Battista del Tasso, to the amazing windows designed by Giorgio Vasari and the beautiful red and white terracotta floor designed by Niccolò Tribolo. The wooden tables running down both sides of the hall were made to Michelangelo’s drawings.
San Lorenzo is more than just an example of the eternal splendor of Medici patronage. - San Lorenzo food central market, every day from 10 am to midnight. Every single thing you can eat at the Mercato Centrale is, as a matter of principle, wholesome, healthy and delicious. For a gourmet (URL HIDDEN) (tripe) sandwich try NIGRO (URL HIDDEN) simply the best! All foods are prepared in the simplest of ways, and the supply chain is 100% guaranteed, given that the artisans of taste make the products then sell them at "moderate" prices.” -Andreina breakfast in the Antica Pasticceria Sieni pastry shop, via dell'Ariento - the true spirit of Florentine cuisine at Trattoria da Mario and Trattoria Sergio Gozzi; - brunch or continental breakfast at the Konnubio, via dei conti. - restaurant, bistro, florist, cocktail bar and boutique, La Ménagère - Walking distance to Piazza Signoria, Uffizi, Cathedral, Galleria Dell'Accademia, Ponte Vecchio, S.
