Florence: perfect for shopping, museum hopping, and sunset gelato dinners


Don Nino: try the pistachio almond gelato (favorite!)

4 Leoni: if you don't go here & get the pear ravioli, you haven't truly visited Florence

La Carraia: gelato by the river

Gusta: heart-shaped pizza!

All'Antico Vinaio: salami sammies right by the Uffizi

Gilli: the cutest candy store

Newscafe: amazing lattes/latte art


Duomo: walk around it, walk up it, peek at it through streets & windows. it's always a beautiful scene.

Boboli Gardens: vast stunning gardens worth a visit

Convent of San Marco: houses my favorite fresco, The Annunciation, by Fra Angelico. such a calming place

Other main attractions: Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi, & Accademia (pro tip: get the firenze card for expedited museum access)
