My best places and experiences in Florence

In this page you will find my suggestions to live Florence as a Florentine (even if I'm not properly one...). Since 10 years I've been living and working in this wonderful city and I've selected for you, my beloved guests, a wide number of spots and experiences for all your kind od requests: from restaurants for all budgets to less known museums and auction houses...

The first place that I want to introduce you is Sostanza restaurant, a small, cozy "trattoria" quite in the heart of Florence. Also known as "Il Troia" (do NOT translate!) this small restaurant offers both classic Florentine: "trippa alla Fiorentina" (Florentine tripe), "papa al pomodoro" (tomato soup)," osso buco". I would recommend the chicken breast with butter, very exquisite...

For dessert I tasted a "meringa" (meringue) and strawberries with lemon. Delicious. The place is very old fashioned and very low prices. You need to book with a bit of advance as the place is often populated by both Florentines and foreigners.

The restaurant Sostanza stands in via del Porcellana, a few minutes by walk from B&B Residenza Vespucci. If you want to try it, just let me know, I'll book a table for you or we can go together...
