Via dei Ceri Vintage Serragli 26
Here you will find really old but modern clothing with a retro feel. The store is like the house of a friend who is selling clothes that he is tired of seeing. So wander and gossip with confidence and take advantage of their prices if you find something you like.

Very near the Ponte Vecchio is an easy to find store, although not all glamor, you can find interesting clothing bargains, go take a look. Furthermore, their assistants are very nice.

° We Murate – Literary Café Florence (Piazza delle Murate, Firenze)
Called Le Murate because it is surrounded by walls, which is not surprising since before it was a prison. Now, in the historic center of Florence, we find the oldest and most charming place in the city. Worth going for breakfast, a snack or to see the sunset and have an aperitif prior to attending any of the interesting events scheduled, whether exhibitions, reading stories or acoustic shows.
Well, night falls and we suppose you want to go to a bar, and move around subtly with your gin and tonic
Angi´s Pub, Via de Neri, 35r
In the district of Santa Croce, we find this little pub where the clientele will welcome you as a local. Frequented by local pseudo-artists, restless travelers, final year college students… it is very indie, ask for “Andy´s book” and leave your artistic mark with either a drawing, a text or a pentagram, as customers have been doing for many years.
Remember we offer cheap apartments in Florence.
