Florence has Delicious Pizza Places for Hungry Visitors

If visitors try one Italian food while they are in Florence, it should be pizza. Because it is in the center of the country, you will find many different styles and choices, including recipes from Rome, Sicily, and Tuscany. Wherever you go, you'll find special pies at each restaurant, and everyone has their own idea of what makes a quality pizza.

For a new take on an old classic, foodies should head to La Divina Pizza. Inspired both old and new recipes, it offers some delicious options for those looking to try a bit of Sicilian influence. Between the thick crust typical of pizzas from Palermo and the fresh topics favored by the Tuscans, the pizza here truly is divine.

Gusta Pizza is well-known throughout Florence for its Neapolitan flair and delicious foods. A popular spot for study abroad students, it has redefined the idea that pizza in Naples cannot be popular in Florence. For those who want more of a self-serving atmosphere, La Bussola offers guests a chance to choose their own options.
