LEGENDARY PASTA & SANDWICHES! Food Tour of Florence Italy

  • Published on Sep 19, 2018
  • My food adventure in Florence Italy continues as I spend the entire day just eating nonstop which is my type of fun :-) I really wanted to try out some iconic Florentine dishes and just as much pasta as I can get my hands on.
    For my first stop I went to the central market which is a great place to just hang out and eat, walk around then eat some more and hit the repeat button all day. Then I went looking for a local restaurant that is PACKED all the time and finally went pasta hunting. All in all, a pretty fun day!
    The places I ate at
    Da Nerbone
    Trattoria Mario
    Panini Toscani
    Trattoria Casalinga

    Even if I had this video on mute, I would be drooling at what I was looking at. The prices also were so freaking cheap, makes me mad when we pay twice as much here in the US for something not even half as good (looking or tasting)

    Hi Mike! This past spring semester in college I studied abroad in Perugia, Italy for 6 months (it’s right between Rome and Florence) and I couldn’t recommend a place more to go for food! I had been to Florence and Rome many times when I was abroad and the food is obviously amazing in those two places but the food in Perugia I think is even more amazing! It’s even more affordable as well. If you ever go back to Italy, which I highly recommend, you should go to smaller cities as well! The food, the views, and the people are truly amazing and it really gives you a feel of the true Italian lifestyle. The region of Umbria has amazing little towns and cities and I would recommend them to anyone if you want to see more of Italy!

    Ms. Keyser says she doesn’t know Kavanaugh and there was no party she remembers? Do you think it’s possible that Ford took the book Judge wrote and inserted herself into a story that’s a combination of stuff in the book+additional fictional events? since no one invited ford or send her home?
