Today is Liberation Day in Italy, lots of local shops are closed and the streets are fluttered with more tourists. For lunch we headed to Trattoria Mario, which is hands down my favorite place to eat in Florence. I had a hunch they would be closed, and I was right. So we crossed the street into Mercato Centrale to eat at Da Nerbone, another incredible little eatery. Also closed. But I really can’t complain, because we resorted (I know awful, right?) to Terrazza Brunelleschi; the rooftop garden restaurant at Hotel Baglioni. Open to everyone, with super friendly and accommodating staff. We spent a couple hours sipping some Chianti and finally enjoying the full day of sun.
