What We Love About Florence
On The Destination
- A private tour of an otherwise off-limits wing of the Uffizi containing the Contini Bonacossi collection of Renaissance masterworks.
- Shopping the leather stalls of the San Lorenzo market or the fashion boutiques around Via Tornabuoni, especially the luxurious linens of Loretta Caponi and the monk-made cosmetics and liqueurs of the Officina Profumo-Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella—both in frescoed palazzi.
- Visiting the Teatro del Sale for an evening of authentic Italian food and entertainment—jazz singers, theater performances, and stand-up comedians—masterminded by eccentric restaurateur Fabio Picchi.
