#DrivingAvecPassion on the streets of Florence, lentamente, savouring every fluid movement on the meandering streets guarded by history, you can, suddenly and unexpectedly, find yourself at a dead end. In a dilemma few are known to have ever solved – the Cavalli dilemma: what Caffè Giacosa location to choose?!

When in Florence, one thing is sure: you can’t say you had the full Florentine experience without a special moment at the spectacular Cavalli Caffe! Blending art, fashion and delightful flavors of sweets & cocktails, Cavalli Caffe Firenze is certainly a MUST destination.

Recently, I had the privilege of being taken to hundreds of exclusive fashion destinations around the world. Mercedes-Benz GLA by Tiriac Auto is my closest BFF and gave me the opportunity to drink the best coffee in town! I had to park the car outside the legendary streets of the old city center (as driving is not allowed due to conservation the legendary architecture).

On Via della Spada, 10 you have secular Florentine tradition. Here you find the caffè where the Tuscan high society has been rendezvous-ing, more exactly, from 1815 onwards.

Known as the meeting place for a refined clientele like Prince Ruspoli and other nobles like della Gherardesca, Torricelli, and Corsi, the Caffè Giacosa became the center of Florentine society, a “show window” for aristocrats and the elite.

It is, also the place acclaimed as inventing the Negroni cocktail. And Roberto Cavalli has made it his mission to keep intact all of this background – architecture, atmosphere and serving ritual. A few distinctive Cavalli landmarks have been added – animal prints in the décor, Cavalli chocolate, vodka and wines on display to lure and delight.

But we also have Cavalli DNA and authentically Florentine location at Caffè Giacosa Piazza Strozzi! This time mixing the splendour of one of Florence’s most beautiful courtyards with the modernity of a caffè in tune with modern living. Bio products, Slowfood cuisine and full Wi-Fi connection, like an invitation to become part of the new nobility coming to Giacosa to see and be seen.

Well, a dilemma is the best word to describe the situation, don’t you think? Still, the risks of a choice are minimal. The Giacosa locations have been awarded the visitor’s Certificate of Excellence for 2014, and they swear by its coffee being the best in town.

ONE MORE VOTE FROM ME!!!
