My new strada (street)

Borgo degli Albizi is a long street of the historic center of Florence, passing through Piazza San Pier Maggiore. The street takes its name from the Florentine family Albizi, which still have numerous houses here, along with other wealthy Florentine families. Today the piazza & street are filled with cafes, boutique shopping and restaurants. My favorites are Medoro café in the square, Vestri chocolates and Atelier Aimee bridal shop. I never go inside Aimee, but window shop daily :)
