It's no secret Florence isn't my favorite. In fact, if you are reading this and still deciding your Italy itinerary, go to Rome, Naples, Palermo, or Modena instead. My Gola Podcast co-host, on the other hand, has chosen to make Florence her part time home and Dr. Callegari has good taste, so you be the judge. You can listen to our podcast about Firenze here. In it, I acknowledge Florence isn't all bad (in spite of being flooded with tourists in a way that makes Venice look like a ghost town). Find a selection of the reasons below.
- Posh or expensive:
- Trippaio Mario- Porta Romana
- Nerbone in the Mercato San Lorenzo
- Tripperia Il Magazzino in Piazza della Passera
- ‘ino sandwich shop
