Rediscover Florence safely with us
We have reached our next stop on our Rediscover the World Journey and arrived in Florence!- this time with tips from Veronica Nencioni from LCC Intertravel in Italy. Not only delicious food but also amazing spots to watch the city with its beautiful skyline.
Get lost in its ancient narrow streets behind Piazza Signoria and eventually you will reach Piazza San-ta Croce and the breathtaking Basilica.
During meal-time do not miss the best "schiacciata" in town All’antico Vinaio https://www.allanticovinaio.com/ (schiacciata is a traditional tuscan salted flat bread, topped with extra virgin olive oil and filled with gourmet ingredients).
After crossing the Ponte alle Grazie you will reach San Niccolò, a genuine neighborhood of Florence.
Veronica invites you to spend some time in this "art district" and sit at one of the open-air bars for a fresh drink or a food coffee.
Veronica also highly recommends climbing towards Piazzale Michelangelo via Le Rampe del Poggi, a panoramic way connecting San Niccolò to the main top terrace in Florence. At sunset, Piazzale Mi-chelangelo offers the best view on Florence.
The top view can be captured from the Abbey San Miniato al Monte, situated few meters higher on the same hill. The view is magnificent but the church is also amazing.
Walking back slowly downtown, you have to try the traditional Florentine food the Osteria Antica Mescita San Niccolò https://osteriasanniccolo.webnode.it/
