Based on previous reviews and the high price we paid, we expected top quality and an exceptional experience. It did not meet our expectations - most of the food prepared was not any better than you would get at a mediocre restaurant. Only part kids...More

Santa Croce
Stop and stare at the beauty and symmetry of the
Basilica of Santa Croce any time day or night.
Unraveling around it are a number of architectural and
artistic masterpieces, from the Synagogue to the
Central National Library. As a hub for young people,
the area gets busy with people who want to have fun: a
continuous flow of tourists and locals become animated
by songs and dances.
