Q & A

1. What was your most memorable holiday meal?

Sharing a pizza and a Caprese salad with my mum in Florence, it was her first trip to Italy for her 70th birthday, and the food, setting and atmosphere were amazing.

2. What is the best thing about being in Italy?

The food and wine! Everything tastes so fresh in Italy.

3. Where would you love to go next, and why?   

The Amalfi Coast, it’s so stunning. The clear waters and small towns are so beautiful and getting around to the different areas is really convenient.

4. Do you prefer visiting cities, coast or countryside, and why?   

City breaks for sure. I love experiencing all the different foods, attractions, and most importantly, the wines. Good food and wine are number one on the holiday checklist.

Florence Holidays
Florence is a lot smaller than some of the other cities. It’s not as commercialised, so you still get that authentic Italian city feel without having to give up on the historic atmosphere. The buildings in Florence are really pretty, I enjoyed walking the streets, discovering more about the city. One of my favourite parts was climbing to the top of the Duomo, the views were absolutely sensational. You climb up a spiral staircase in the cathedral and once you’re at the top you can see out over the entire city, it was such a treat. Even as someone who’s not great with heights, I highly recommend it to everyone.
Brunelleschi Hotel, Florence
Brunelleschi Hotel, it’s in the centre of Florence and overlooks the Duomo. It offers the ideal location for exploring all the little streets, restaurants, and cafes in the city.
