Florence is a Tuscan dream. I fell in love with the beautiful bridges and canals, and cobblestone alleys, oh and of course the pasta and the gelato. We stayed in an Airbnb in the perfect location right by the Palazzo Vecchio.
What To See & Do
Palazzo Vecchio has the most amazing jewelry stores up and down the entire bridge, which I enjoyed gawking at all the diamonds and amazing jewels.
Duomo is Firenze is so so awesome!! Definitely buy a ticket to climb to the top for the most incredible view of the entire city.
Gucci Garden (Gucci Museum) is so so cool. I really enjoyed seeing all the vintage pieces as well as seeing how Gucci has evolved, becoming the iconic brand it is today.
David Accademia Gallery is a must! I recommend purchasing a ticket ahead of time to avoid the long lines!
Piazzale Michelangelo is the best place to watch the sunset with a bottle of wine with the best views of Florence.
The Leather Markets are awesome! I swooped up this adorable little backpack (which I also got in light pink for a birthday gift for my friend.)
Boboli Gardens are the prettiest gardens and such a fun activity that even offers incredible views of Florence.
Where To Eat
All’Antico Vinaio is the famous sandwich shop in Florence that definitely lives up to the hype. I got a basic order of prosciutto, tomato, and mozzarella with pesto.
Trattoria 4 Leoni was so delicious. I definitely recommend getting the pear ravioli and the cheesecake for dessert. YUM YUM YUM.
Gelateria La Carraia is INCREDIBLE. I have had a lot of gelato in my life, and this gelato right here may have been the best gelato I have ever had… regardless it is definitely top 3.
