A gridded view of Roman life.
In Vienna the old faces off against the new, this is particularly obvious where the Gothic St. Stephen’s Cathedral faces off against the modern, glass-and-steel Haas Haus building. This monochromatic reflection demonstrates how old is incorporated by the new.
Come on a foodies tour of Florence with us, Giovanna and Marco (Italian aliases courtesy of our tour guide).
To start in Italy one must always begin with an espresso.
and a nice light breakfast – sfogliatina alla crema at Pasticceria Sieni.
Heading to Florence’s central market for a hearty second breakfast. Slow braised veal panino.
Don’t forget the hot sauce.
A quick meander around the market and a stop off to taste some cheese and salumi.
So much cheese.
So much parmigiano.
A major highlight – balsamic appreciation. So delicious!
Balsamic on everything!
Can you be a foodie in Florence without the obligatory wine tasting? I think not, and also ensure that you get a good grappa spritzing. Grappa immersion is apparently the only way to appreciate it. Grappa immersion is messy so the camera was put away.
And wrapping up an Italian food tour should end with gelati. Not once.
Too much gelati? Maybe or maybe not?
A special thanks to our friends for sending us on this wonderful food tour of Florence.
