Caffe Florian born in Venice in 1720. It is the oldest cafe in the World. Florian Florence is a fine dining restaurant and a museum of contemporary art.
Caffe Florian was opened on December 29th 1720 by Floriano Francesconi under the name Venezia Trionfante, but soon became known as Florian’s.
To the present day, Florian’s has continued to serve the finest coffee, tea and cakes, wine and cocktails and is one of the most beautiful interiors in which you can ever hope to sit and enjoy a coffee.
Florian’s was a hunting ground for Casanova – at the time, it was the only café to admit women – and over the years has served the greatest artists of the day,
including Byron, Goethe, Madame de Stael, Charles Dickens, Proust, Rousseau, Artur Rubinstein, Stravinsky, Modigliani, and of course, Balzac.
