About Me
My name is Barbara Lafratta, and I am a tour guide. I love living in Firenze because art is everywhere, the food is amazing, and in an hour's drive you can get to the seaside or mountains!
You have to go to
Ponte Vecchio Bridge
Here's one fun activity you can do
Hop on a Segway and ride through the city center.
Don't forget to check out one of my favorite places
My favorite place is Giardino delle Rose, the Rose Garden though which you can walk with no charge to reach the hilltop panoramic square "Piazzale Michelangelo." It's special because of its charming and rich of sculptures by Belgian artist Foulon.
Enjoy a meal at my favorite restaurant
On Via de Neri Street you'll find the best focaccia with the typical cold cuts and cheese of Tuscany!
Here's a doable bucket list for you to do in one day
1. Piazza Signoria,
2. Piazza Duomo
3. Santa Croce Church
4. Ponte Vecchio and walk along the Arno River
5. San Lorenzo Food Market
6. Piazzale Michelangelo and San Miniato Church
My extra insider tip for you is
Don't get a gelato on the main touristy streets. Look for gelato places with the sign "artigianale," which indicates that these are the only ones that use fresh ingredients!
