The real life and taste of Florence
It is known that as Florentines we like to eat, but more importantly, to eat good. Every taste can be satisfied by our local cuisine. In small typical inns,where it is possible to enjoy a delicious rare Fiorentina steak or hot Pappardelle with boar. In gourmet restaurants, where tradition meets innovation and imagination. But also in wine shops, where is possible to taste a glass of Chianti DOCG wine, a Tuscanian excellence. Lastly a mention of honor goes to gelato, the sweet art-made dessert that you can enjoy on a romantic terrace facing the Arno river. And for the nightlife lovers, at sunset the Oltrarno shops turn into clubs, where you can have a drink and sample fine wines. A wide range of experiences, all at once.
