So I was looking back on my blog posts and I cannot believe that I haven’t done a post on All’Antico Vinaio!!! It is unarguably the best sandwich shop in the whole of Florence, and I wouldn’t hesitate to say the whole of Italy, perhaps even in the world….get it? It’s ah-mazing.
I cannot believe that I only have one week left in Florence. It only feels like yesterday that I was moving in and now I’m starting to pack things up! It’s been an amazing year and it’s going to be so hard to say the final farewell. Nevertheless, I’m making the most of my final days here and still exploring this gorgeous city. La Menagere is one of the new top spots in Florence, it is a quirky, contemporary cafe/bar/restaurant in the San Lorenzo area and is attracting quite the crowd!!
Since I’ve finished my work placement and thus have significantly more free time, Millie and I have dedicated July to travel. We recently went to Cinque Terre! I’ve always wanted to go ever since I first arrived in Florence. If you’ve never heard of Cinque Terre, it’s a national park consisting of five small towns on the coast of Liguria.

I haven’t posted anything in a while about my year abroad!! I’ve been slacking and I only have 3 weeks left!! Cannot believe how quickly the year has gone! So over the next couple days I’m planning to do a couple new posts to get the blog going again!
I finished my work placement at Ermanno Scervino at the end of last month. It was such a great experience and met so many lovely people. Working there made me realise that the fashion industry is not all ‘The Devil Wears Prada’!! I really loved it and it’s given me some inspiration for what I want to do after I graduate.
Ditta Artigianale is without a doubt one of my favourite cafes in Florence. It has such a cool vibe and everyone I take there always says how nice it is. By day it’s a quirky Italian cafe and by night it’s a Gin lovers bar. It is in the very heart of Florence’s historic quarters, Via dei Neri, 32, between Santa Croce and Piazza della Signora.

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and wishing you all the best for 2015! Can’t quite believe it’s 2015 already, 2014 just flew by!!! Since the Christmas period is almost over, I thought I’d reminisce on Florence during my favourite time of the year. Continue reading →
