Caffè Florian, Venice

Photograph by Christina Anzenberger, Redux

Venice's famous Caffè Florian, perched on Piazza San Marco, the city's main square, has provided a cozy space for couples for nearly 300 years. The interior of Venice's oldest and most opulent café has barely changed since it opened for business in 1720. Since then it has served coffee, hot chocolate, and more to the likes of Casanova, Charles Dickens, and Marcel Proust.
