city trip: florence (march ’12)

A weekend in Florence… Starting the day with a cappuccino and cornetto at Gilli on the Piazza della Repubblica // browsing boutiques and eyeing window displays // walks across the Arno river // ordering a tè freddo alla pesca at the Rinascente (Piazza della Repubblica) cafe, with views of the Duomo // eating pizza from Gusta Pizza (Via Maggio 46) on the steps of the Convento Padri Agostiniani // visiting the 400-year-old pharmacy Santa Maria Novella (Via della Scala 16) // strolls through the beautiful Boboli Gardens // cannoli devouring at O’Cafe (Via de’ Bardi 58) // visiting the Palazzo Strozzi for the exhibition ‘Americans in Florence: Sargent and the American Impressionists‘ // a delicious crudo e mozzarella panino from I Due Vratellini (Via dei Cimatori 38) // sampling Italian gelato as a popsicle stick // bar lounging at Caffe Giacosa (Via della Spada 10) // tasting the traditional Tuscan pappa al pomodoro at Ristorante Trattoria ZàZà (Piazza del Mercato Centrale 26). Other city favorites include Berlin, IstanbulLondon, MontrealParis and Portland.
