Firenze: My Little Guide

IMG_2834.jpg

I lived in Florence for three years. Magical, romantic and incredibly beautiful, it is one of the city to visit at least once in lifetime. This post will be my a small (and very personal) guide on the places that most fascinated, the restaurants, pubs and trattorie that I higly recommend in Florence.The transport company is called ATAF and the app you can download it here

THE CITY

• Ponte Vecchio, it's ridicoulos hot famous it is and of course is worth seeing. Don't forget to  caress boar that brings good luck. • Piazza della Signoria • Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore • Piazza Santa Croce. My favorite is the church of Santa Croce where Stendhal was struck by the syndrome that today takes its name. • Oblate, a former convent, is now a library. Go up on the top floor and enjoy a drink on the large terrace. • Piazza Santo Spirito, beautiful in the evening, with large numbers of people who took advantage of the large square to make an aperitif, beautiful in daylight too. • Lungarno. After the Ponte Vecchio this is the second must see in the city. Highly recommended at sunset where the colors are amazing. • Market of San Lorenzo, the fur trade, every day only during the day. • Piazzale Michelangelo. You can get there by feet or with a bus. You see all of Florence from above. Day or night the show is guaranteed. • Palazzo Pitti

GARDENS

• Garden Bardini • Boboli Gardens • Cascine

WHERE TO EAT

• Absolutely Trattoria da Mario near San Lorenzo Market. It 's my favorite place, I recommend it to everyone and everyone likes it. Open only for lunch, do a little 'in a row, you sit with others and is soooo good. Prohibited ask ketchup, mayonnaise and well cooked Florentine: they send you to hell literally.
