You HAVE TO eat here on your trip to Florence, Italy!!
Florence, you quaint little village of a town. You’re adorable and manageable, yet brimming with history and culture. Best described as an outdoor museum, the streets are alive with replicas of some of the most famous European sculptures. Spend your morning at Accademia Gallery, climb the Duomo in the afternoon, stroll Ponte Vecchio bridge at sunset, take your snapshot of the best cityscape view from Piazzale Michealangelo, and then.. my loves, relax.
Unlike the other major tourist cities of Italy, Florence holds onto it’s charm quite well. Yet, just like all of the other cities, it’s a mecca for the world’s worst food. [insert your gasp of shock here]. You are in Italy, so you naturally have assumed every restaurant has a nonna in the back rolling your pasta while she hand feeds you prosciutto and mozzarella over aged chianti. Your fantasy couldn’t be more wrong. Unfortunately, I have had worse meals in Italy than i have had out of the frozen section at Trader Joe’s.
So here’s the truth… you need to do your research to eat well in Florence, but if you do, you just might have the best meals of your entire existence. Oh wait, did I say you need to do the research? I retract that. All YOU need to do is keep reading.
