Guidebook for Florence

Entertainment & Activities
Florence is great, but you should also get out of the city and explore the Tuscan countryside! :) Tuscany Cycle is just minutes from the apartment and they are the perfect hosts to take you on tour by Vespa or bike to explore the rolling tuscan hills!

Food Scene
Great spot for aperitivo (Italian happy hour) or a luxurious dinner. And because they are located on the Arno river they have a stunning view of the Ponte Vecchio and the river! Ask for Fabiano at the bar when you go :)

This place is the real deal! There is not even a sign outside you keep your eyes peeled or you might miss it! Local couple baking their own delicious bread, florentine schiacciata, and pastries. Go for lunch and make your own sandwich and make sure to get it on the schiacciata! Great for a quick pastry in the morning or a panino at lunch!

Sightseeing
Forte Belvedere is one of the lesser visited sites in Florence but I don't know why! The view is better than Piazzale Michelangelo and there is usually an artist's work displayed throughout the fort. Not to miss and a more off-the-beaten-path spot

The Bargello is another less visited spot in Florence but it is just minutes from your doorstep and is well worth a visit. Houses famous works by Michelangelo, Donatello, and more. And it is an interesting place for a museum as it is a former prison!

Drinks & Nightlife
Great bar that used to be an old wood working shop. There are wood carvings all over and there is even an old wood working bench turned dining table. Great spot for a coffee or crepe during the day and aperitivo, people watching, and live music at night!
