We are visiting Florence for the first time Fri Sept 1 and leaving Tuesday AM. Staying in an apartment near the Duomo. I could use some help/advice/review of an itinerary
Fri: Arriving around 5P after a transfer from Rome, with stop in Siena and lunch in Tuscany. Looking for a casual dinner. T'amero or Gesto. Mad Souls or Rasputin for a cocktail.
Sat: L'Accademia, Basilica San Lorenzo and Santa Maria Novella. Lunch at SanwiChic, snack at Mercato Centrale. Dinner: Osteria dei Pazzi, Buca Dell'Orafo, Club Culinaro Osvaldo or La Osterio di Giovanni. Any advice?
Sun: Duomo, San Miniato for Vespers, susnet at Piazzale Michelangelo. Brunch at the Diner or Le Vespi Cafe (see other post...). Dinner at Enoteca Pitti Gola. Rasputin or Cafe D'Artigiani for a cocktail. Open to other advice after walking down from the Piazzale.
Mon: Palace Vecchio, Santa Croce basilica, Leather school. Thinking La Mangia or La Proscciutteria for lunch. Dinner at La Osterio di Giovanni with cocktails at Manifattura. But dinner is really any already listed on Saturday.
Thanks for your advice! Open to any and all.
