Step into the Renaissance from Enoteca Alessi





Step into history from Enoteca Alessi!We have told you many tales of the Enoteca Alessi, our winery and delicatessen shop in Florence city center.But Enoteca Alessi is not only a must visit shop for food and wine lovers. It is a strategic spot to choose as headquarter for your strolls and adventures across Florence.The very best part of the huge of the Florentine artistic and historical heritage is just few steps away from Via delle Oche (Goose Street!) where Enoteca Alessi has its shop, cellar and wine bar.And, from the front door of the Enoteca, you already have a glimpse of the most important monument of Florence: the Cattedrale of Santa Maria del Fiore, Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Flower. Previously Roman settlement, then Medieval church, and after the very best evidence of the amazing Renaissance age in Florence.With nothing more than a nice walk, you reach the Galleria degli Uffizi, one of the most important museum of the world. Few more steps, here it is the beauty of the Arno River crossed by the Ponte Vecchio, probably one of the most beautiful bridges in the world. Enoteca Alessi: history within as well! But Tuscan and Italian historical heritage is inside the Enoteca as well: because many products of the great Italian food culture have a centuries-old, and sometimes millennial, tradition: we already mentioned in another post that the Frescobaldi House started winemaking in the Middle Age; the Cantuccini di Prato or the Cialda di Montecatini history spans from the Middle Age, just like the tradition of the Aceto Balsamico (balsamic vinegar) or Vin Santo (Holy Wine, the Tuscan sweet wine).
