Vini e Vecchi Sapori Via dei Magazzini 3r, 50100 Florence, Italy 055-293-045 Book early to avoid missing out on one of Italy's best restaurants. A family owned and operated restaurant with friendly, attentive service, great wine selection, and a menu full of fantastic authentic Italian cuisine. I recommend you try the duck parpadelle. It is delicious. This would be one of the best dining experiences I have ever had.
il Santo Bevitore: cross one of the bridges over the Arno in Florence and head to the small side streets. Amazing place off the beaten tourist path; Italian food with a global twist, seared tuna, an antipasto bar, order a half litre of vino, you get the bottle and pay for what you drink. Food, service, ambiance - the whole package, leaves you feeling like a savvy local!
Appreciate the art, food, wine, and landscapes of Florence and surrounding countryside in both Tuscany and Umbria. This museum houses some of the best Renaissance sculptures ever (Bargello Museum, Florence).
