There's always the Ponte Vecchio, the David, and the Duomo, but these 10 tidbits are best enjoyed or only available when it's cold outside.1. Hot Chocolate I know. Hot Chocolate. What a cool, new thing you've never tried before, right? WRONG. First of all, if you've never been to Italy, you probably think hot chocolate is a liquid. But in this ingenious country, it's not. What Italians call hot chocolate (you know, besides "cioccolato caldo") is a thick, velvety rich drink that's almost a pudding but not quite. It's served with a spoon, so, you decide. For the absolute best hot chocolate in Florence, cross the Arno and find your way to "Hemingway." Their menu includes creations from the world champion of artistic chocolate-making. A valid reason for the café being a little pricey? I'd say so. Savor a creamy, white hot chocolate with ginger, and try not to feel bad for those silly people who come to Florence in the summer.Hemingway Piazza Piattellina, 9 50124 Florence, Italy Hours: Mon to Thu 4:30 p.m. to 1 a.m., Fri and Sat 4:30 p.m. to 2 a.m., Sun 2 p.m. to 1 a.m.
