It may be the most expensive cafes in Venice, but Cafe Florian is history and a work of art in itself. It has been preserved almost like a museum, being Europe's oldest cafe, opened in 1720 and has been the visiting place of famous names such as Hemingway, Russo or Casanova.

People come to the cafe not only because of its tasty pastries or delicious coffees, but because of the history-old aspect and the air that surrounds the place. You can feel history in Florian. Magnificent!

Address:
Piazza San Marco, 30124 Venice, Italy

Price:
Just a tip: 10EUR for a coffee.
