Food Bites.

I’ve not really written too much about my food adventures in Florence during my stay here. To make up for this I thought I’d pile together a list of all the places I’ve tried (or my fantastic housemates have) and loved. I won’t go into detail about each, apart from what sort of food they sell, but these are a list of good, fail-safe options if you’re at a loss where to go.
