Florence Trip Itineraries

Top 10 Fun Restaurants in Tuscany

Destination(s): Florence

Dining in Tuscany is all about the local traditions and the good wines, but if you want a full Italian experience you should look for some interaction with the charming and talkative locals, be they fellow patrons or restaurant owners. One of the most famous Tuscany characters is six generation butcher Dario Cecchini at the Dario Cecchini - Solociccia, who will give you a cultural experience by reciting Dante or singing opera while serving you a traditional medieval dish.

Another remarkable culinary experience in Tuscany is having to choose the best wine from a list of 1300 options at Enoteca Italiana, where the highly skilled staff will help you make the right decision. However, if you are more of a beer fan, visit il Bovaro and try one of the birras from their very own brewery. Whatever your choices might be, these are great places to feel the authentic Tuscan spirit and let it spice up a perfectly prepared meal. read more about Top 10 Fun Restaurants in Tuscany
