My Top 3 Must Sees:
- Cinque Terre (which I did not have the pleasure of visiting last time)
- My favorite restaurant in Florence, Ristorante da il Latini (www.illatini.com). This restaurant was across from my apartment. We loved it! It is a set price and all the courses, but you have some selections within it and it is ohhhhhhh soooooo good. I even saw it featured on the food network after I came back from Florence! A definite must. They do not take reservations and you have to wait in line outside for a bit, but the upside is that they bring you complimentary drinks while you wait in line and everyone gets a bottle of wine to take home!
- L' Uffizi - No trip would be complete without it, despite the fact that I have been to this museum at least five times. It is where, at the age of 15, I first fell in love with art history! Despite a very annoyed father who grumbled and pouted I spent over an hour (and no, I am not exaggerating) in the Boticelli room. I was in complete awe of La Primavera. I tried to take in every last detail, despite the occasional loud and boisterous tourist group (You know the ones I am talking about. Every time I enter the Uffizi I encounter them. They move fast from one must see painting to the other. They stop to hear a few key details of the painting and then race to the next stop on their list taking out any bystander who gets in the way).
