So…what are your Valentine’s Day plans? Have you been searching all over town for that perfect, charming, romantic Italian bistro?
Here’s a better idea: why not surprise your sweetie with some authentic Chianti and handmade risotto in Tuscany?
Following on from my previous post about Valentine’s Day Adventures in Paris, I would now like to focus on the beautiful, fascinating, historical city of Florence—one of my favourite places in Europe.
Romantic Valentine’s Day Adventure in Florence
Before you indulge in the delicious tastes of Tuscany, you will want to acquaint yourself with your surroundings on this informative bus sightseeing tour of Florence. With over 30 stops, including Museo dell’Opera, the Duomo, the Basilica of Santa Croce, Palazzo Pitti and Teatro Verdi, you can pick and choose your own, exciting (romance-filled!) itinerary.
The ultimate Valentine’s Day adventure—a wine tasting excursion through gorgeous Tuscany! Breathe in the crisp, countryside air as you depart the city of Florence to discover the endless, rolling countryside. Learn all about the unique harvesting and fermentation processes that produce some of the finest wines in the world. And, of course, taste them for yourselves.
No trip to Florence is complete without a trip to the Uffizi Gallery! If you take any advice from this post, let it be this: you must book your tickets to the Uffizi in advance. I repeat: book your tour of the Uffizi in advance. The queues are enormous, and it is impossible to just ‘turn up’ on the day you wish to browse one of the world’s most famous collections of Medieval and Renaissance art. Enjoy!
After a few delicious Tuscan meals, you and your partner may want to experiment with a few recipes yourselves. Why not sign up for this authentic Tuscan Cooking class, which is actually conducted in a Florentine home? Follow the step-by-step preparation of a traditional Tuscan dish, and, afterwards, taste your own creation as you sit down to a relaxing dinner with your course instructor and classmates.
