McDonalds Florence

by Ladymarian1

OK I know its probably not the done thing to ask for a McDonalds - case of the old piggy bank - we're wrinklies and hope to have some fun - does anyone please know the address of the local McDonalds or other fast food restaurants where we can get a cheap mid day bite. All replies greatly appreciated - our kids have disowned us - but more realistically got bitten by the travel bug as well!

Hiya, There is a Mcdonald's adjoining the main railway station & i remember another one somewhere near to Boboli Gardens ( giardino di boboli ) but the one at the station will be closest if you are in the city centre, Darren.

There is one by the Santa Maria Novella railway station (Pïazza della Stazione) but I would have thought you could easily buy panini or something just as cheap, but with local flavour from almost anywhere (e.g. at Piero, Piazza del Duomo).

It's so easy to find delightful non-expensive foods in the small markets, delis, and also supermarkets, rather than eat in some McDonalds, if you are on a stict budget. I carry a small shopping bag with me, buy some local bread and any variety of ham, cheeses, olives, fresh veggies, and fruits. This makes for a much healthier diet, too. Panini and pizza by the slice are also good ideas. You should look for these places in back-street neighborhoods, not the well-touristed areas. And then, you'll also find a more authentic view of Italian life, if you are interested.

When I was briefly living there I admit I had a one-time hankering for something that tasted like home. So I caved in and stopped one evening at the McDonalds I passed daily on my walk home from class.

To get there:
From the Duomo, follow Via de'Martelli (it turns into Cavour) for about 2 blocks. McDonalds will be on your left.

But I can't help but reiterate what other people have mentioned, it is certainly possible to find delicious, inexpensive food in Florence. It's like any other city, there is a selection for all price ranges. Check out some of the Florence pages for the Restaurant Tips people offer. A lot of them (most, actually) will tell you approximately how much that particular restaurant charges per person.

Travel Tips for Florence

Piazza Michelangiolo...

by CandS

Watch the sun set at Piazza Michelangiolo, you will get a wonderful view of Florence... It's great to sit up there as the sun goes down and relax with someone special or friends. :)

It is easy enough to walk up there (although it's a long walk!) or (as we found out later) you can take a bus from the station.

Firenze Gelato Festival

by milliturtle

We were able to go to the first annual gelato festival in Florence held on May 28 to 31, 2010. Being big fans of gelato, we were quickly rearranging our travel plans to make sure we can at least do some of the activities.

Basically, the artisan gelato makers were invited to participate. Throughout the festival, there are activities for children (such as gelato making workshop), demonstrations, seminars, and tastings. You can get a gelato pass for 4 euros that will give you 5 tastings, or you can get a 1 tasting ticket for 1 euro. There are "artisan villages" at different locations in Florence, and we visited the location near the Duomo. There were 6 participants that morning and we tried from 5 of them. (10 am was a bit too early for gelato, so we couldn't have tasted more.)

Because this is a showcase for these master gelato makers, they serve some interesting flavours - we tried the marscapone, ricotta, green apple, cookies, and straciatella fiorentina (has alcohol). All good but my fabourites were green apple and marscapone. There were many more we wished we could try.

We couldn't find any of the other events, like the one where they make gelato using traditional equipment, so I cannot comment any further. Based on the schedule, there seems to be a lot going on in the next few days. The volunteers at the ticket booth were able to give us some pointers, but I wished there were more information out there in English.

I think there is potential for this festival (if they hold it again) but it will need to be better advertised. We saw two posters in the 2 days prior to the start of the festival. I spoke with a few other people and none of them know of the festival before hand.

The website I attached is in Italian, by the way. There really wasn't a lot of available information in English when we were researching our trip.

tons to choose from!

by kazander about San Lorenzo Market

There is so much at this market. It's a great place to pick up souveniers or gifts. I bought my suede jacket here when I was in highschool (see pic) and I was able to bargain the price down by $40.
