Florence On the Road

Florence, Italy
Florence is a wonderful city, well deserving of its title as a mandatory tourist stop for those exploring Italy. Known in Italy as Firenze, its Catedral Duomo is unparalleled in its exterior beauty, its Ponte Vecchio rich in history and one of the city's most well known landmarks, and its museums (Uffizi Gallery) hold a wealth of masterpieces from Italy's best known painters and sculptors.

The city center with its medieval strees and buildings are unique and its measures makes Florence nice to walk.

Florence is rich of historical and architectonic treasures but not only.

The food and the wine take their part in the life of Florentine. We love good food and ours local recipes as the T-bone steak, “Ribollita” soup, “Trippa alla Fiorentina” tasted with Chianti area wines leads you to the conteplation of the city.

The markets in Florence offer something for everyone as the market of San Lorenzo with the leather goods and handicraft made, as the main shopping streets like Via Tornabuoni offer you the best: Gucci, Prada, Cavalli in their amazing luxury.

Florence is beautiful, but the surrounding countryside is absolutely stunning. If you go in the fall, you'll see changing leaves, rolling hills, and unparalleled beauty. You may want to visit surrounding towns like Siena or San Gimignano, for which we recommend renting a car or scooter so that you can see the landscape at your leisure.

The Florentines have sometimes strange behaviors : somebody describe them reserved (may be by their-own) and just materials but our italian dialect and our way to make relationships (we have to joke about everything) help us to create friendship in short times.

So enjoy Florence and please pay attention at Stendhal's syndrome.
