I was amazed by the quality of the local Toscanian dishes at the buffet, the good wine, the nice local people and the cool house music. Located on the other side of the river, a hidden gem far from the crowds.

Santo Spirito / San Frediano

they cannot help but stare at the architectural
masterpieces like Bianca Cappello House, Fontana dello
Sprone and San Frediano in Cestello and Santa Maria
