Concierge.com's insider take:
Local boy Roberto Cavalli's flagship store opened a couple of years ago, controversially taking over a space previously occupied by Giacosa, one of Florence's classic cafés. The mouthwatering cakes and pastries in the window have been replaced by Cavalli's brash rock-star creations. When you get fed up with shopping (or to recover from the price tag on that pair of skintight, sequined, and ripped-up jeans), pop next door to Cavalli's café, where you can perch on a leopard-skin ottoman and watch a catwalk show on the huge video screen while sipping a cocktail; you might even catch a glimpse of the man himself.
