Florence - the ultimate guide to a romantic escapade 🌸
Spending some time in beautiful Florence? This is a complete list that provides you with a handful of options: accommodation, tourist attractions, shops, bars and restaurants - you’ll need no other guide, I promise! So…have a bite and a drink alongside Arno river and take home the most impressive bespoke souvenirs. The city blends art and history and romantic vibes all together and pretty soon you’ll find yourself in love. 💓 Must do - trips to picturesque towns located nearby: • San Gimignano: 1h away • Siena: 1h10 away • Volterra: 1h20 away Highlights: ⚜️ Il Giglio - giglio bottonato, is mainly known from the crest of the city of Florence. In the Florentine fleurs-de-lis, the stamens are always posed between the petals. This is also the emblem of the city and you shall see it depicted all over. 🍨 Gelato “crema fiorentina” - is the specific flavor of Florence, made with a simple combination of egg yolks, milk, and sugar. It is often flavored with chestnut honey, while another common addition includes crumbled amaretti cookies or almond liqueur. It is a neutral ice cream flavor with delicate pale-yellow color. 🍧 Affogato - a delightful and simple Italian dessert or beverage that combines two beloved elements: espresso and gelato or ice cream. The word "affogato" in Italian means "drowned," and that perfectly describes the preparation of this delicious treat. The basic affogato recipe involves pouring a hot, freshly brewed espresso over a scoop of cold gelato or ice cream. The hot espresso contrasts with the cold and creamy gelato, resulting in a harmonious and satisfying flavour combination. 🥩 Bistecca alla fiorentina - Italian steak made of young steer (vitellone) or heifer (scottona) that, combined with the specific preparation, makes it one of the most popular dishes of Tuscan cuisine. 🍷 "Buchette del vino" - or wine windows, are a peculiar feature of Florence. They are foot-high, dome-shaped holes in the thick, stone palazzi of the Renaissance city that six centuries ago were used to sell wine in a fiasco (glass bottle) without having to open a shop and avoid paying taxes. These wine windows also posed a useful anti-contagion way to sell wine during the epidemic of 1630-1633. At that time, the bubonic plague hit Florence hard, killing 12% of the city's population.

Patrizia Pepe
@lauradehel
The passion of Patrizia Bambi (Creative Director) combined with the entrepreneurial spirit of Claudio Orrea (President), culminated in the creation of Patrizia Pepe. Florence, 1993. The name “Pepe” was immediately identified with an irreverent sensuality, made of contrasts and opposites. From this moment on, women could now recognise themselves in a brand which seamlessly combines everyday practicality with glamour for all those important moments, from morning to evening, thanks to the collection’s dual versatility and cutting silhouettes. A new idea of a woman, our woman, is brought to life: sensual, irreverent, courageous and self-aware. Conscious of her own body, she pursues a holistic vision of well-being. Ironic and urban, she loves to experiment. She brandishes a strong, independent spirit and is an idealist. In a short time, Patrizia Pepe proved itself capable of creating iconic garments of indisputable originality, recognisable and appreciated over the years.

The food is delicious! The setting is romantic and cozy and makes you crave for wine. 😁 I tried “Selezione di formaggi con miele d'acacia " (Selection of Tuscan cheeses served with acacia honey) at 12€ which was AMAZING! Then I went for the best truffle pasta - “Tagliolini con fonduta di pecorino e tartufo nero” (Fresh handmade tagliolini with pecorino cheese fondue and black truffle) at 18€. And I had some wine the whole time, of course.

CURATED BY
Hi! 🤗 I’m Laura - born and grown nearby the Romanian coasts of the Black Sea, in Constanta (a city with great history which I invite you all to visit and enjoy). This city and its surroundings, with beautiful, wide beaches have always drawn lots of tourists, thus… I have been working in the hospitality industry for quite a while now. Of course, I enjoy more being a tourist myself 😁(or perhaps…should I say “a traveler”?). In the past few years I have travelled across Europe (and most of its capitals and big cities) and found out many special places which I longed to share with others (it would have been a pity not being able to do so nowadays). So, thanks to Thatch I can provide some lists to help me and my friends out along our journeys - and, hopefully, other Thatchers as well. P.S.1 I am always open to suggestions or feedback on how to improve the info that I’m sharing. P.S.2 I am passionate about my shopping, therefore all my guides shall always include shopping venues that mainly sell authentic brands - bespoke souvenirs are what we want to take home with us, right? P.S.3 My guides shall always include many venues/places because I like options. Personally, I wouldn’t cross half a city just to get to a specific restaurant…after a long day, in particular, I would rather find a good spot close to the hotel that I’m staying at (or somewhere in that area). Moreover, different trips in the same city could target a totally different area and wouldn’t it be nice to explore its best by knowing all the variety of services/products available around?

Vegetable glue, old-fashioned dyed leather and hand-folded sheets make this shop a true Florentine gem, a workshop that captures the authentic charm that its products exude.

Ristorante il Paiolo
@lauradehel
The food is delicious! The setting is romantic and cozy and makes you crave for wine. 😁 I tried “Selezione di formaggi con miele d'acacia " (Selection of Tuscan cheeses served with acacia honey) at 12€ which was AMAZING! Then I went for the best truffle pasta - “Tagliolini con fonduta di pecorino e tartufo nero” (Fresh handmade tagliolini with pecorino cheese fondue and black truffle) at 18€. And I had some wine the whole time, of course.

Great way to taste an unique variety of Italian wines in a modern and elegant setting. Highly recommend for an aperitivo drink next to the Arno river. Also a fantastic souvenir idea - can take 100ml bottles home in your carry on baggage!

CURATED BY
Hi! 🤗 I’m Laura - born and grown nearby the Romanian coasts of the Black Sea, in Constanta (a city with great history which I invite you all to visit and enjoy). This city and its surroundings, with beautiful, wide beaches have always drawn lots of tourists, thus… I have been working in the hospitality industry for quite a while now. Of course, I enjoy more being a tourist myself 😁(or perhaps…should I say “a traveler”?). In the past few years I have travelled across Europe (and most of its capitals and big cities) and found out many special places which I longed to share with others (it would have been a pity not being able to do so nowadays). So, thanks to Thatch I can provide some lists to help me and my friends out along our journeys - and, hopefully, other Thatchers as well. P.S.1 I am always open to suggestions or feedback on how to improve the info that I’m sharing. P.S.2 I am passionate about my shopping, therefore all my guides shall always include shopping venues that mainly sell authentic brands - bespoke souvenirs are what we want to take home with us, right? P.S.3 My guides shall always include many venues/places because I like options. Personally, I wouldn’t cross half a city just to get to a specific restaurant…after a long day, in particular, I would rather find a good spot close to the hotel that I’m staying at (or somewhere in that area). Moreover, different trips in the same city could target a totally different area and wouldn’t it be nice to explore its best by knowing all the variety of services/products available around?
