Florence, Metropolitan City of Florence, Italy
When you go to Florence, don't forget to wander outside the "Centro Storico" to see how the "regular" people live. There are great photo opportunities in the outer neighborhoods that are both tranquil and "real".

Piazza Santo Spirito, 9, 50125 Firenze FI, Italy

Via Pratese, 46, 50145 Firenze FI, Italy
Warehouse-style Tenax is located way out near Pertola airport but it’s a great place to hear cultish live music and big-name DJ sets. Alex Neri’s Saturday night ‘Nobody’s Perfect’ is one of Florence’s coolest nights out.
