Sample the Local Food

Our favourite thing about Florence is its food. Picture sinking your teeth into a big, juicy Bistecca alla Fiorentina (it's the best meat in the world, and we can bet on that). Also, don't miss out on trying Schiacciata Fiorentina for dessert. It's like biting into a fluffy cake with a hint of orange.

Piazzale Michelangelo is the best place ever to see Florence from up high. It's like being on top of the world! And guess what? You can also go visit vineyards and olive groves in the countryside around Tuscany. It's like stepping into a postcard, with rows of grapevines and olive trees stretching out.

Romantic Spots
