Florence

No ultimate bucket list for Tuscany, Italy, could possibly be complete without at least a nod towards the region’s glorious capital. It might be better to make it a little more than a nod, though. This city is positively brimming at the Renaissance seams with artistic treasures and amazing tales. The obvious highlights are the inlaid marble Duomo and the Uffizi Gallery, where you’ll discover pieces by Michelangelo and da Vinci’s Adoration of the Magi. However, you could also hit the Museo Galileo to uncover the innovative discoveries made by one of Italy’s finest. And there are awesome lookouts up on the Giardino Bardini with views that encompass the Arno River, the Ponte Vecchio, and the hills of Arezzo.

Freshly cooked pasta in delicious, rich sauces paired with fettunta, the original garlic bread, any visitor to Florence is sure to experience some of the world’s most amazing food without even trying. From delicious Italian pastries to Mediterranean-influenced fresh dishes, Florence encompasses all of the mesmerizing, comforting food that made us fall in love with traveling for cuisine in the first place.
