Shopping for Food in Tuscany

Shopping for food in Tuscany is a wonderful experience. You can purchase food from the local market. It's fresh and the vegetables taste amazing!

Fresh produce in the marketplace

Or at the local coop. If you need a cart, make sure you have some change to unlock it from the rest of the carts. Also, be sure to put gloves on when handling the produce, it's a cultural thing. If you don't you will get the stink eye! LOL!

Thing to do and see in Florence!

Visit the Uffizi Gallery. It houses some of the most favorite paintings in the world including Botticelli's "Birth of Venus" and "Primavera."

In just a walk through the streets, you will see old water fountains or may cross over the famous Ponte Vecchio bridge. You can also see Brunelleschi's famous dome and the Florence Cathedral.

In the town square, you will see the Palazzo Vecchio surrounded by beautifully sculpted statues, including a replica of Michalengo's David.
