Since 1720 you are our great beauty
Caffè Florian is a living heritage of a splendid past, but also and foremost, the lively witness of the day-to-daylife.
Every day, this place shares its history with the thousands of stories that run through it, thanks to regulars and tourists who choose to sit on its burgundy sofas.
The poet Henri de Régnier said: “How can you be anywhere other than in this place, where it is so good to let yourself live!”
