Unless something has changed recently, Baghetto is in Rome, not Florence.

Baghetto Milan is Glatt, Baghetto Rome is not (although they have some glatt options). I was in both this month. Baghetto Florence I am not sure if glatt or not, but I think it is under the local Chabad Rabbi Levi.

What are the current food options?

How about Shabbos?

It looks like there are two chabads in Florence. Can anyone advise?

Anybody stay in St Regis over Shabbos?

Any issues with automatic doors, using stairs, etc?
