1) “Climb” on the top of the Duomo in a sunny day. The view is unforgettable.

2) Eat a Gelato (Ice cream) in Santa Croce in a spring or a summer day. The best gelaterie of the district (and perhaps of the city) are Vivoli (Via Isola delle Stinche, 7) , Vestri (Borgo degli Albizi,11) and Gelat’amo (via doni 18r). Don’t miss this experience !

3) A ride in Vespa (or scooter) toward Piazzale Michelangelo or Fiesole in a warm spring day. You’ll really experience the freedom and the joy of the Dolce Vita

4) A visit at Galleria dell’Accademia (Via Ricasoli, 58) where is exposed the originall David of Michelangelo. To follow the process that from the marble (“i prigioni”) brings to a masterpiece is really a great experience…
