We eat us through the days and continued all through the evenings in the best places we heard of, read about and got recommended by true food connoisseurs. It's such a pleasure, sharing the interest with someone close, the demand for the best of food and drinks and we truly love that aspect of life, where the ingredients, the atmosphere, the genuine knowledge about taste and flavours blends together in a all time kitchen experience, invited to some marvellous chiefs secret love.
The weather promised rain for two of the days, but we had the destiny on our side and mostly we were blessed with beautiful and warm spring temperatures and this tempting italian sun. We walked around as much as possible and breathing in the lively fullness of the italian soul and the quite run down city that even so, have this sort of charm, only a city in the south parts of Europe can get away with.
For the admiration of this city, I would say it's by far all high quality trattorias in the small corners, offering superb food with an impressive variety and fantasy in the making! The wide selection of wine and the friendly citizens is also something that make you feel this sort of south comfort and laid back feeling. The negative part of this city is the enormous amount of tourist, students etc, etc. Even if we didn't go during the high seasons, you have to expect at least an two hour queue to the museums, exhibitions and other parts of the city of culture. That is just so sad and takes away a lot of the charm. It also feels like Florence unfortunately have had its period of greatness when it comes to the facade, the architecture and the famous gardens that almost felt like a joke in a greater perspective, which is such a pity. We also tried some of the more modern and hip restaurants, but for atmosphere, quality, service and wine - it's absolutely not where you should go. The places I will write about is the italians best choice, quite expensive and sophisticated, but a memory for life when it comes to the all time experience and the true genuine italian kitchen. So, stay tuned!
