Day 1 - Florence


Secret places of Florence are hard to find unless you told exactly where they are. Mercato Sant' Ambrogio isn't so much as hidden perse but it is one of the lesser known markets. It is located in Piazza Ghiberti and open from 7am-2pm every day except Sunday. One of the oldest churches in Florence SS. Apostoli is set right in the center of Florence. With the Arno just a stone's throw away, SS. Apostoli was serverly damaged in the 1966 flood.

Day 2 - Florence


Casa di Dante is where Dante lived most of his life. The house is full of old garments of his, his bedroom and other memorable manuscripts he wrote in his life. Palazzo Antinori is still owned to this day by another well-known family in Florence, the Antinoris'. The Palazzo does not welcome visitors but the Cantina does.

Day 3 - Florence


I left the top places to eat to the last day. This is to keep your taste buds wanting more. Both dinning experiences are reasonably priced and are worth a visit. Borgo Antico is located in Piazza Santo Spirito. It is famous for it's friendly staff and the pizzas. Have a late lunch at Borgo Antico and then for dinner travel just a few piazze over. Piazza della Passera is where Trattoria dei Quattro Leoni resides. A small piazza with a large display of locals enjoying a feast of antipasti, primi and secondi. Don't forget to try their desserts that will for sure make you want to plan your trip back as soon as possible.
