    What are some off the tourist map things to do in Florence, Italy?

    I think you were asking for ideas of places to go that are *off* the main tourist map! So how about the Museo Stibbert! The Bardini Gardens or Le Cascine! The Orto Botanico! Or you can take a train to Montelupo Fiorentino, center of ceramic and maiolica since the middle ages, and visit the shops! Need more ideas? :) www.tgiflorence.com about 6 years ago

    Let me expand on that. We'll be traveling through Tuscany next year, including Florence. We'd like a good vinoteca that serves food as well.

    AJF, Chianti is the region that lies between Florence and Siena. This is wine country! There are many wineries that also have restaurants. One of my favorites is Fattoria Montagliari, between Greve and Panzano on the Ss222 Chiantigiana Road. It's a small family owned and operated winery - excellent Chianti Classico, Riserva and Brunesco (Supertuscan), extra virgin olive oil and aged (20 and 30 years!) balsamic. Everything from the kitchen is home-made and delicious! www.tgiflorence.com about 6 years ago

    What is a truly outstanding restaurant in Florence?

    We eat at Mangiafuoco on Via Guelfa at least once a week. Tuscan cooking with a little bit of flair, friendly owners, lots of locals. www.tgiflorence.com about 6 years ago

    What's the best gelato in Florence, Italy?

    Florence is the birthplace of gelato (Bernardo Buontalenti was it's daddy!) so when you come here, you just gotta fill up! Avoid the gelateria around the main tourist sites that have their gelato all piled up high and decorated with who-knows-what. This gelato has been pumped up with a lot of air and is not the real deal. The best gelato is dense, smooth and creamy. Here are some of my favorite gelaterie: Gelateria dei Neri - Via dei Neri Vivoli - Via Isola delle Stinche (near Santa Croce) Grom - Via delle Oche (near the Duomo) Gelateria Carapina - Via Lambertesca (near Ponte Vecchio) Le Parigine - Via dei Servi (between the Duomo and Piazza Santissima Annunziata) Gelateria Santa Trinita (facing the Ponte S.Trinita on the Oltrarno side) Gelateria La Carriai (facing Ponte della Carraia on the Oltrarno Side) ... as you can see, I take my gelato seriously! :) www.tgiflorence.com about 6 years ago
