Top 10 Restaurants in Tuscany

Top 10 Restaurants in Tuscany
Destination(s): Siena

Eating in Tuscany is as much about the food as it is about the location, so you should always consider the best restaurants when it comes to seeing and being seen. This place is terribly self indulging as well, so the only serious restaurants you are going to find in Tuscany are with local specific, proudly serving their home made pastas and their finest cuts of beef. Pick one of the wines from the extensive local collections, and you are in for a truly Italian culinary experience. Be they local legends or tourist favorites, these restaurants are in a constant competition to add new twists to the traditional Tuscan cuisine, so they change their menu daily (like the Osteria Castelvecchio), brew their own beer (like at il Bovaro) or have a member of the owners' family come join you for dinner and let you in on some culinary secrets (like at Pangies Bistrot). Now that's authentic Italian! read more about Top 10 Restaurants in Tuscany... Read More

Nightlife

Nightlife
Destination(s): Florence

Florence has an active nightlife for such a small town. There are beautiful bars populated by beautiful people. If clubbing and dancing are your idea of a vacation then Florence will not disappoint. Another great evening activity is to enjoy an aperitivo at any of the many bars that offer one. With the purchase of just one drink you have access to a limitless buffet. Be sure to pace yourself, Italian bartenders pour more liberally than their US colleagues. read more about Nightlife... Read More

Active Traveler

Active Traveler
Destination(s): Florence

If you are like my father then visiting museums and sipping coffee in a piazza is a sort of torture designed to test your patience. This four day itinerary is for those who rise at 6:30AM while on vacation to go jogging and who would rather climb to the top of a bell tower than sit in front of a Botticelli. There are museums and there are Botticellis but there are also plenty of opportunities to move your legs. You should be able to reach most of the places I suggest outside the city via public transportation. read more about Active Traveler... Read More
