A Venetian landmark, the iconic Caffè Florian in the city's Piazza San Marco has been frequented by many luminaries of the literary, musical and art world since opening its doors in 1720. The illustrious clientele include Lord Byron, Charles Dickens, Proust, Rousseau and Stravinsky to name but a few. At the time Caffè Florian was the only café in the city that allowed women to enter and the infamous Casanova used it as his playground.
Today, devotee’s travel far and wide to soak up its ambiance and to stop awhile and recapture some of the Caffè’s history. Thanks to Senti, you too can now enjoy a little of the Caffè Florian magic in your own home.
