So everybody asks where do I eat, stay , shop... Where do the locals love. So here
is random list of things and places I love in Florence. Completly personal and ever
(this least could be exhaustive so I change it all the time!)
The gelateria at Pointe Carraia - my favorite in Florence
Theatro Del Sale - Set Menu and a lot of fun
Cafe Pitti - Lunch with a view
Hemingway - Chocolate Desserts
Ora D’Aria - Amazing Modern Tuscan - my favorite in Florence
Fagoli - Great classic Tuscan near Santa Croce
Florence has a ton to offer in this area but for a good value for money in the center
I like theBargello B & B Run by Canadian born Gabriella it’s got great customer
service and it’s within walking distance of everything. Beautiful veiws from the
rooftop terrace as well. The climb up the stairs is worth the walk.
Forget the outlets and shop to your hearts content in the Artisian center of Oltrano
just over the Pointe Vecchio. Here you can see artisians at work in their workshops
and pick up one of a kind designer keepsakes. My personal 2 favorite shops in the
area: Casini-right across from Pitti Palace. Jennifer designs and artisanally produces
all the products so a great place to pick up high end pieces. r La Zebra on Via
Romana. Studio is in the store and you can often see him hand printing fabrics!
