If you wish to be a real Florentine, you cannot avoid trying Lampredotto - a special kind of meat in bread you should eat standing, on the street. This is available in Florence and nowhere else. The best in town is not in the center, but this is a good compromise

Arts & Culture
"Art and nature" could be the motto of this extraordinary museum dedicated to semi-precious stone inlays, where artistic talent competes only with the splendour of the materials employed. It was the passion of the Medici for this precious form of art that led Grand Duke Ferdinando I de'Medici to establish in 1588 a court laboratory specialised in semi-precious mosaics and inlays. This grand ducal institution, which remained active for down three centuries, was the core of the Opificio delle Pietre Dure, established at the end of the 19th century, which still has its seat in the original location chosen in 1798 for the laboratories formerly housed in the Uffizi.
