Under the Tuscan Sun

 

October 16th, 2016

Full of museums, gelato and pizza; this holiday was the perfect carb loving break with the girls.

If you’re not a massive museum/gallery fan then two of the must see museum’s include Academia del galleria (most famous for Michaelgo’s masterpiece: the David) and the Uffizi gallery known for Botticelli’s Birth of Venus and Primavera.

For the best pizza in Florence, Gusto’s is your man. At only seven euros for a whole pizza it was definitely worth it (however, there is usually a small wait for a table)

We had booked to go to the top restaurant in Florence on our last night. La Bottega, the Michelin Star restaurant was quite the experience. With a limited number of tables, it definitely gave an exclusive vibe (must book in advance).

The interior is in a classic Florentine style combined with the very finest elements of both classic and contemporary design. Overlooking the famous River Arno, this is the perfect venue for a special occasion.

The service was amazing; the waiters were very attentive and friendly. The food was outstanding, with each dish really tingling your taste buds. They have a seasonal menu, which is designed to reflect the local fresh supplies in the Florentine Location. The chef had even given us complimentary tasters to try whilst waiting for our mains.  All in all I think we had around six courses!

Florence’s little secret…
My favourite part of the trip was in Fiesole.  Not many people know about this place but we had found this spot up in the mountains overlooking the whole of Florence. The view was truly beautiful. You can get there easily by bus from the town centre.
