What city will you be talking about?

Firenze

What’s the cheapest way to enjoy this city at night?

Simply stroll and enjoy the buzz of the city at night when it puts on a different face.

What’s your favorite restaurant here? What’s so special about it?

Il Profeta. This was our first visit to Italy and independently at that. We were introduced to the Italian way of dining – choose one course at a time and take your time to savour and enjoy the food and wine. Pasquale made our special anniversary meal unforgettable as he guided us through the menu. We returned five years later.

What’s your favorite thing to do on a warm Sunday morning in this city?

Go to church, enjoying the church bells ringing. Stroll through the Boboli Gardens, the Pitti Palace and have lunch.

What were some of the hidden gems in that city? Why?

There are many. We were fascinated on a Sunday morning by the bandsman in his uniform and hat with a huge black plume of feathers. The river, bridges, palaces, gardens, but most of all the craftsman workshops in the back streets where you see life off the tourist trail.

Anything else you want to add?
