Everyone has their own way of traveling and discovering new places. There are those who love to explore alone, those who prefer guided tours … But one thing is undeniable: nothing beats being a tourist under the wise advice of the locals. And that’s what we’re going to do here! We spoke to our front office manager Marco Piteo, who has prepared a list of 4 places outside the mainstream NOT TO BE MISSED in Florence. We present you the super Florentine guide of Marco Piteo!
Gelateria della Passera
The Gelateria della Passera, in the same name square, is a pleasant place where you can enjoy an ice cream that is not only good but also particular. In fact, here you can select uncommon flavors that sometimes border on the incredible. My favorite flavor: lavender honey and pecans. A rare and authentic delicacy.
The other place, also in Piazza della Passera, is the Il Magazzino restaurant. Here you can taste tripe cooked in many different ways, a real ode to the Florentine style.
Another place that I love when I go in ‘Florence by Night’ mode is the Rasputin club in Borgo Tegolaio. This is a secret bar, a different place than usual where you can sip incredible cocktails.
The last place I love if I want to feel super cool and find an item of clothing that makes me feel handsome but above all exclusive is the Atelier Gatto in Pizza de Pitti. Here, in fact, it is possible to request unique models to create your favorite outfit. You can choose and range from tailoring to hats.
