Rolling hills of vineyards, cypress trees, the last rays of a sunset glinting off a glass of wine—this epitomizes Italy’s Tuscany region. In the heart of it all, you’ll find the city of Florence.
One could argue that the artisanal flavors of Tuscan cuisine rival the city’s Renaissance masterpieces as a reason to visit Florence. Marbled meats, golden olive oil, a crunch of fresh baked bread washed down with local wine paints a picture of flavors unique to the region.
To top it all off, Florence is the birthplace of gelato. What more reason does a foodie need to visit this spectacular city?
