Caffé Florian, Piazza San Marco (Square) – Venice, Italy

Caffè Florian is a coffee house situated in the Procuratie Nuove of Piazza San Marco (San Marco Square), Venezia (Venice). It was established in 1720, and is the oldest coffee house in continuous operation in Italy, and the oldest in the world.

The Florian opened with two simply furnished rooms on 29 December 1720 as “Alla Venezia Trionfante” (Venice the Triumphant), but soon became known as Caffè Florian, after its original owner Floriano Francesconi.
