Florence gives the opportunity to live very romantic moments.

At night, the atmosphere becomes even more favourable for love: choose a cozy  restaurant on one of the lungarno, the streets along the river, and enjoy, beside love and romanticism, some extraordinary food, too.

Florence ties with lovers and love goes beyond art and natural beauty, though: it is a true screen of love stories and tales. Ponte Vecchio itself keeps the legend of a Florentine nobleman who was killed with a dagger while he was riding because of a love matter.
