We were looking for a place to eat and i remembered that there could be a restaurant in Piazza Cimatori that was still visited by the Florentines themselves. However, when i arrived there I saw the Antico Trippaio food truck and suddenly remembered that it was there 50 years ago! It is part and parcel of Florence, almost a tradition... More

Lampredotto (cow stomach sandwich) was on my list of typical Florence foods that I would like to try. When I saw this food truck while wandering around in Florence, I felt that I have found the right place to try this local street food. The gentleman vendor was patient to answer my questions about options I had. Eventually I picked... More

We stopped by here randomnly one day looking for a quick bite for lunch and we were not disappointed. We tried the porchetta with eggplant sandwich and it was amazing. The service is quick and very friendly. It was so good that we came back the next day and tried some of the other sandwiches. The couple that run the... More

Stumbled upon this place while waiting to enter a museum. Its a small little street food place with great sandwiches. The guy was very friendly and didn't mind that we took a little while to order. I had the porchetta and my friend had a salami & cheese sandwich. They each were 4.5 euros and pretty big! However the salami... More

This food truck has delicious food! My husband and I ordered a tripe salad, and a tripe sandwich which were both finger licking good! This is a must have! It's a food truck that only has 6 stools to sit down, so most people eat standing up. This place was always packed.

We changed on this food truck on our way to Uffizi. We needed a quick lunch and were wanting to taste the famed lampredotto. It was serendipity. We expected a quick taste & were blown away by the complex flavours. Lampredotto is a must have if you are in Florence, if I go by the one served here. There are... More

Tucked away behind the Piazza Signoria in the tiny Piazza de Cimatori is this 'barroccio' style eatery serving, and it's an acquired taste, panini with 'trippa' and with 'lampredotto' - Florentine delicacies comprising offal boiled in broth and served with a herb sauce and/or chili sauce. On a winter's day this is the perfect place for a quick and cheap,... More

Whenever I'm back in Florence, this is one of the mainstays for a quick afternoon bite. The Trippa Fiorentina, with green sauce, or the Lampredotto on a crusty Tuscan bread is one of the best lunches I can think of. Most Americans shy away from tripe, but travel is all about new experiences, and I implore you to try this.... More

Staying in Duomo

Neighborhood Profile
Duomo
Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city. The historic center is characterized by the immensity of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city as it was in ancient times, with maids walking in the main square and horses carrying coaches. Nowadays, roads are busy with street artists. Rustic Tuscan bakeries give way to fashion shops; just stop for a few minutes in the middle of Piazza della Repubblica to enjoy the colors and sweet melody of the carousel that will bring back great memories from anyone’s childhood.
