Jun 12, 2012 — An aesthetically captivating city with a small community atmosphere, Florence somehow manages to capture that laidback yet sophisticated vibe without ever seeming the least bit pretentious. And all the museums, scenic landscapes, and incredible sculptures scattered around the city are just awe-inspiring.
Besides the traditional evening promenade that brings tons of super-stylish people into the public squares to chat and mingle, perhaps the best part of the day is the aperitivo. This fantastic cultural tradition provides an affordable but entertaining way to start the evening with some world-class Chianti and delicious nibbles. Shared with a friend or two at a café with breathtaking views and a young crowd, aperitivo can easily turn into a scenic and social mixer perfect for meeting new people.
