- Wine and Dine – Being in Italy it is a no- brainer that food has to be part of the journey guide and Florence is no exception. Offering some of the highest quality dining experiences in the whole country, one can start their food tour from Trattoria Mario, a very well renowned restaurant at the Via Rosina that has relatively inexpensive food and offers the unique opportunity to actually share a table with a stranger which is a great way to get to know some of the locals or even mingle with other tourists so as to figure out what you would like to experience next.
