About Florence Restaurants

It's easy to get caught up in some of the tourist traps when you are looking for a place to eat--Florence boasts many of them, and they can be cleverly disguised. Visitors looking for an authentic meal might find that ducking into side streets and alleyways yield some of the best results.
