Cityguide Florence

I never felt so in love with a city as I did with Florence. It was my first time here and I didn’t have any expectations. Which is always the best when visiting a new place. I would never have thought that this could be a potential city to live. The atmosphere is great and reminds me a lot of Amsterdam. People are nice and relaxed, you find cool coffeehouses in every area and enough bars who serve Aperol Spritz.

CITY HIGHLIGHTS


All’antico Vinaio

During lunchtime there is a huge queue on both sides of Via dei Neri which both lead to a sandwich place named All’antico Vinaio. Doesn’t matter how long you will have to wait, it’s worth it.

What shall I order?
La Schiacciata Del Boss

Information:
Via dei Neri, 74/R

Da’ Vinattieri

Eat and drink like locals. You will find Da’ Vinattieri in a small arrow. For two euro you can have a red wine in a plastic cup. Wine to go (we should bring this concept to Amsterdam) They sell some delicious and typical snacks as well like coccoli.

What shall I order?
Coccoli Tartufo and a red wine.
