little road trip this past weekend. we rented a car and made our way to the beautiful firenze on saturday morning. despite the rain, seeing the city in action for the holidays was quite special. with lights on almost every street, it was hard not to feel the christmas spirit. a quick walk through the leather market, piazza duomo, piazza della repubblica, il porcellino, piazza della signoria, and of course, ponte vecchio, helped us work up our appetite for trattoria 13 gobbi. we enjoyed the BEST rigatoni in the world, stopped by the dive bar “one eyed jack” for some affordable cocktails, and then headed out to “full-up” for some struttin of the stuff.
we ended the trip on sunday with a stroll through the leather market, and a quick panini at “i due fratellini”.
overall, a great weekend and a nice change of scenery from milano. if you’re planning a trip to florence, let us know and we will send you our fave spots!
