Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Florence

Despite its Renaissance pedigree and the beauty of its buildings, Florence isn't a pretentious, unfriendly place at all. In fact, everyone should feel at home when dining out or visiting the attractions. Try to get off the tourist trail though, as the city has much to offer that guidebooks don't necessarily mention. Ask the locals about hidden treasures like the frescoes at San Miniato Del Monte, or the theatre-come-dining hall at the Teatro del Sale. The locals also love to enjoy the city's gardens and parks, so recharge your batteries and join them at beautiful spots like Cascine Park or the Torrigiani Gardens. You might also want to see the city from the river with an Arno Boat Tour, or take some recommendations and visit wineries in the hills. You might also meet some local football fans, as Florence (Fiorentina) are one of many teams with a grand history. Whatever you do, enjoy the magic of Florence with Hotels.com.
