Our first visit to Venice and Florian was a must! Of course it’s going to be expensive but frankly it was worth every penny. We sat outside and had their signature hot chocolate and listened to the music.....the most romantic experience ever 😍

No visit to Venice is complete without stopping by at the Classic Cafe Florian at San Marco square. Charming outdoor seating, also tables inside, with a mini Orchestra playing - tops. Enjoyable day or night.
