One of the best parts about being in Italy is that everyday things are their own little adventures - even a trip to the italian supermarket grocery store can be a portal into a world...
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.

All of Florence is beautiful, with its vibrant culture filling the streets. This city oozes art, style, class and history waits round every corner. It's also a very individual and quirky place where people are encouraged to be themselves, and this shows in many of the shops and bars around the city. Here are my top ten hidden gems. Places that not everyone knows about, and the fact they feel secret makes them even more special.
