Florence is without a doubt one of the most beautiful and most scenically magnificent places in Italy if not the world. Not only does the city have stupendous natural beauty, but it’s urban-amazing and historically rich too. I’m lucky in spending few days there twice a year during “Pitti Uomo” festival and usually when work allows me I get a chance to visit my favourite restaurants and local bars. Take notes in case you’re visiting this August! You should try Caffe Cibreo -fresh, modern and true florentine flavour! Go with the impeccable daily specials that never disappoint and you will find yourself coming back again and again. Also, another place that I love is Al Fresco at the Four Seasons Hotel. One of the best places during the summer to enjoy authentic italian pizza in the open air as the name suggest.  As for cultural enlightment, you should definitely visit Uffizi, among the oldest and most famous art museums of Europe and the world. It’s worths the wait! Also San Miniato al Monte, one of the highest points in the city and one of the most scenic churches in Italy.  Best get saving for some travel! Arrivederci, Firenze!
