Last Night In Florence

For our last night in Florence, Thomas and I went to a delicious restaurant called Za-Za, recommended by our tour guide. One thing that took some getting used to in Italy was eating later. We are so used to eating dinner around 6pm, but in Italy most people don’t head out to dinner until a least 8 or 8:30.  While this was strange at first, we quickly became accustomed to the time change and soon loved our new ritual of heading to early cocktails and relaxing  before dinner.

Our last day in Florence was spent wandering around, exploring the San Lorenzo Market, eating gelato and discovering the most amazing focaccia bread ever! We loved getting lost in all of the little streets within Florence and always having our trusty iphone map to get us back to our hotel.

For our third night in Florence, Thomas and went to the rooftop bar at one of our hotels  (the boutique hotel we stayed at was part of four hotels) for drinks before dinner. The two photos over-looking florence were taken there, where we have a 360 degree  view of the city. If you are looking for a great spot to go before dinner, definitely look up The Sky Bar at the Continental.  We then headed to dinner at 4 Leoni (recommended by a reader) and it was probably one of our favorite restaurants in Italy! It was by far the least expensive dinner we went to and had the best  wine and ravioli. Ah, I’m dreaming of it still….!
