Florence

Cooking Class

Florence and Tuscany are becoming synonym of cooking class. Tuscan cuisine is appreciated worldwide and a cooking class experience is now more and more part of Tuscany attractions, carrying back home memories and improved cooking skills. There are many in the area, either in historical villas in the countryside or in central Florence, from Florentine use of tripe and giblets to the use of organic ingredients from the local producers. From limited amount of students to large classes. During high touristic season make sure to book in advance.

Climb the Duomo or Campanile

Traverse the winding staircases inside the duomo or the nearby bell tower to see some of the best views of Florence. Not only can you see the Tuscan countryside in the distance and the impressive palaces and churches of Florence in the fore, but it also shows you just how large the Duomo is.

Stroll the Boboli Gardens

These extensive gardens behind the Pitti palace provide excellent views of the city of Florence and numerous sculptures in a relaxed environment. Stop in the hilltop café, grab a drink and a seat outside and enjoy the view.

Street Performers by the Uffizi
in front of the Palazzo Vecchio

In the evenings street performers often put on a show here. Performances can range from violin duets to people dressed as sculptures. A nice place to stop while you eat your after-dinner gelato.

Enjoy the view from the Piazzale Michelangelo

It's a big square on a hill, but somewhat distant from the traditional tourist sites. It's easy to reach it even on foot using the stairs called "Rampe di San Niccolò". They are on the side of the Arno river just in front of the national library. Do this thing during the summer and during the night to admire Florence's lights.
