Enjoy the experience... Apr 22, 2011
Seriously, how many times you are in Venice?

Open in 1720 this cafe is lost in time "but in the best way possible", it kept all the grand and excellence from an era that luckily we didn't have to live in, but we can totally experience at is best.

It is expensive, but it is worth to try it. You also have to pay an extra for the music but the frescos and the orchestra transport you while the teas, coffees, pastries and desserts make you dizzy and happy. You will feel like royalty... Yes, live like a king for the time you sit here, plus it is Europe, you don't have to rush anyway, nobody ask you to leave ; )
Magic!

It's who you know and how you look... Feb 22, 2007
The Florian has been around since 1720 and was a place where the elite could meet. Today, just about anyone can meet there, but be warned...if you don't look "right", you'll find yourself standing in line with others for a very long time. This is especially true during Carnivale. Those in the right costumes can get right in. Those not in costume (like the average tourist) don't seem to be admitted (at least I didn't see any). Instead, they stand in long lines and press their faces to the windows, trying to get a glimpse of those inside. I was one of the lucky ones since I was in costume. I felt like I was admitted into the inner circle of the elite. Others inside seemed to think our group must have been someone important to know because many stopped by sit and talk to us. It was funny to see so many faces looking in a "me" and trying to take photos through the windows!

I had tea (many varieties to choose from) and desert while I was there. The deserts are to die for and presented in a way that made you hesitate tasting them because of their beauty.
