Opened on December 29, 1720
by Floriano Francesconi under the name "Alla Venezia Trionfante
", Florian was quickly re-named after his owner, becoming the most famous "cafe
", frequented by illustrious characters such as Casanova, Goldoni, Canaletto and Guardi.
In about three centuries of history, Café Florian has been the heart of Venetian society since the fall of the Serenissima to the revolutionary motions in 1848.

In a prestigious position, under the porticoes of the New Procuratie in Piazza San Marc, Caffè Florian is the most antique Italian cafe and represents a symbol of the city.
