Via dei Girolami, 28R, 50122 Firenze FI, Italy
Armed with only a recommendation, a description, and the general location of the restaurant—but no actual restaurant name—we found Ristorante Buca dell’Orafo, near the Ponte Vecchio. The small restaurant is below street level off an alley-wide...

Florence is famous for many reasons: the Duomo, the David, the whole Renaissance thing.... Sure, these are great—but the pizza. Oh man, the pizza! I'm talking about a thin, doughy crust, fresh ingredients, and a flavor you can barely handle. I'm...

Via delle Porte Sante, 34, 50125 Firenze FI, Italy
Most people who visit Florence know that walking to Piazzale Michelangelo is a must. However, fewer people know that walking a little higher to the old church of San Miniato al Monte is an even better experience. Amble down the Arno River to Viale...

Via dei Vecchietti, 4, 50123 Firenze FI, Italy

Via Maffia, 31r, 50125 Firenze FI, Italy
This pizza place is out of the way of Florence's touristy center, located in the heart of the Oltrarno on the other side of the Arno River. It's worth the walk over, first because the neighborhood gives you a glimpse of life of real Florentines...

Via della Spada, 10r, 50123 Firenze FI, Italy
Giacosa Cafe by Roberto Cavallli serves what is arguably the best coffee in town. Even if you are not in the mood for shopping, the coffee is worth the price of trekking it down to this super chic spot in town. You can also see many Clet...

Via dei Magazzini, 15r, 50122 Firenze FI, Italy
Florence can be bitterly cold in winter when the northerly wind whistles down from the Alps, setting your teeth chattering and turning your lips blue. A woolly hat can make all the difference, and Cinzia’s shop near the Ponte Vecchio has a great...
