Hello, florence

Florence, the regional capital of Tuscany, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Italy. It is acknowledged by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site and stepping onto its historic cobbles, it is easy to see why. Cradled between the surrounding hills, the city hosts some of the most famous works of art on the planet, and the whole of the city centre is packed with stunning palaces, churches, and monuments. The surrounding countryside is well-known for its rolling hills and its wine, particularly the Chianti area between Siena and Florence.


Restaurants to visit

I’Trippaio Fiorentino

If you want to experience the rustic taste of Florence, you must try lampredotto, a cured meat made from the fourth and final stomach of a cow. Its taste is strong and does not leave space for grey zones: love it or hate it. This very typical product is usually eaten in big sandwiches sold in the street by trucks or wagons called "trippai".

La Buchetta Food & Wine Restaurant

Located next to the Vecchio bridge, La Buchetta, though a bit pricey, delivers one of the best dining experiences in Florence. There isn't anything you can't go wrong with on the menu here, but we highly recommend the tender Florentine steak and the melts-in-your-mouth angels and demons gnocchi, both to be accompanied by an excellent wine suggested by the friendly waiters.

Trattoria Mario

Simple trattoria in business since 1953, where you can experience a true genuine Italian lunch with all that it entails. Trattoria Mario has an easy-going mood, with nothing pretentious: the menu is written on a slate, and the waiters speak very little English. Most importantly, the food is incredible and this is all that matters! The menu features Tuscan soups, pasta and meat dishes with regional wines. No reservations and no credit cards, so do not forget to bring cash, and hurry up if you want to find a table!
