Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The

Gilò springs from a dream of Gianfranco Lotti, a Florentine designer and historical leather craftsman, creator of the homonymous brand estabilshed in 1968: opening a space in Florence where one can enjoy the authentic atmosphere of an Italian piano bar. A welcoming place for those who are in search of a refined feel, where the pleasure of being there derives from a peculiar formula made of live music, excellent drinks, superior quality food and late dinner until midnight. facebook.com/gilopianobar instagram.com/gilopianobar
