My 24-year old daughter and I are traveling to Europe the first week of October - my first trip. We will stay in Paris for 3 days, then to Florence for 4 days. I would love some Chowhounds recommendations for where to go. We're not interested in formal restaurants - more interested in experiencing the local cuisines in casual settings. My weaknesses are bread, cheese, pasta. I love anything culinary - open air markets, specialty shops, cookbooks, all of the stuff Chowhounds like. As this is my first trip I don't want to get taken in by tourist traps - any ideas? Many thanks for anytips.
