AL FRESCO AFTERNOONS IN FLORENCE, ITALY
The Westin Excelsior on Piazza Ognissanti has a rooftop bar with Arno River views, and just outside of town in the charming town of Fiesole is 15th century hilltop villa Il Salviatino, where you can have a first-rate Negroni on the outdoor terrace with spectacular panoramas of Florence’s red-tiled roofs. Back in town, don’t miss the opportunity to join both tourists and locals at Gilli, a classic café on the centrally located Piazza della Repubblica. Our recommendation: snag an outdoor table, order a bottle of Prosecco and a bowl of marinated olives, and watch the world go by.
