Let’s not kid each other: You’re on a Florence holiday. Florence is in Tuscany. Naturally you need to go on a wine tour. The Chianti region is only a half-day trip from the city centre and well worth the trek. The tour will take you through wine-making towns like the medieval village of Greve, Sienese and the fortified hilltop village of Etruscan. Who wouldn’t want to spend five hours in the Tuscan countryside swimming in the finest Chianti and downing cheese until you think you’re going to pop? Someone boring, that’s who.
After you’ve finished all the Chianti, head back to the city and climb the 500 stairs or take a taxi to the top of the Piazzale Michelangelo. The views from the top are fantastico and the square is also home to the bronze cast of the second imitation of ‘David’. It is said that this place is one of the most romantic areas to visit during Florence holidays. Shopping, Dining & Nightlife
You’ll have no problem shopping in one of the fashion capitals of the world, especially when you take a walk down Via de’ Tornabuoni. Some of the most famous of Italy’s fashion designers have shops along this road. Imagine the look on your friends’ faces when you roll up in three-piece Armani suit! Are you more into antiques than clothes? No problem; Via Maggio is a street full of valuable artwork and collectables. Italy holidays aren’t complete without dropping a load of cash on something worth your weight in gold. Something from lastminute.com.au’s awesome Florence car hire deals will get you from street to street.
It’s Italy, so finding a good place to eat is like finding a pretty girl in the Playboy Mansion. The quarter of Oltrarno is a great place to escape the crowds of the city centre while still enjoying an authentic Florentine dining experience. Start with an appetiser of antipasti, sliced meats of prosciutto and salame, bread, olive oil and various cheeses. Then move on to a meal of pappardelle sulla leper, T-bone steak and then finish with a dessert of schiacciata alla fiorentina. Oh, and all of this is washed down with wine. Lots and lots of wine.
The word piazza essentially means an open public area, and these are where most of Florence’s nightlife is centred. Piazza Santa Croce is one of the main plazas in town and is littered with nightclubs, cafes and wine bars. There’s also some cheeky places in Piazzale Michelangelo—remember? It’s the place where you hiked all those stairs after downing that bottle of Chianti. Many of the hotels that come with Florence packages have their wine bars right there in the lobby! The Italians never stop with their wine. What’s Next
