There is nothing more romantic than a trip to Florence. It starts with its architecture (particularly the churches), which glimmer in the baking sun. Then there’s the enchanting old artwork in searingly beautiful galleries and museums. And then there’s the sky-high views over the whole of the city, where you can spot the Bell Tower and the Basilica.
But then, there’s the food. This is food unlike anywhere else in Italy, in some seriously beautiful settings. We’re talking fine dining beneath flower-covered walls, dimly-lit restaurants covered in fairy lights, and seafood on a sun-drenched terrace. Oh, and the sandwiches. Don’t forget the sandwiches. Here are the best restaurants in Florence right now.
