A quite long, though lovely, late afternoon walk from Santa Maria Novella, through the charming and attractively named street "Via delle Belle Donne", (Gorgeous Women Road), go straight away to Via dei Tornabuoni and you'll end up on Santa Trinita Bridge just in time to admire the stunning sunset in the middle of the crystal-blue waters of the Arno river:. On your left, you'll enjoy the amazing sight of Ponte Vecchio bridge, still hit and lazily lit by the last sun beams of the closing day, and on your right you'll enjoy the breath taking view of the Alla Carraia bridge, which at this time of the day is totally merged in the blue light of the "magic hour" at twilight. After enjoying such a lovely and unforgettable view of one of the most beautiful places in the world, not far from Palazzo Pitti, take a walk of just few more metres and have your typically Florentine dinner at La Mangiatoia, in Piazza San Felice 8. I've just been there and tasted my "Maltagliati al cinghiale" (large handmade pappardelle pasta with wild boar ragout sauce), and it was delicious, served with red local wine and parmigiana di melanzane (eggplant pie). The price is definitely OK, about 20 euros per person, and, if you prefer, you can also sit at one of the tables outside, in a small yard where the air is still warm and agreeable in Florence at this time of the year.
Have a nice and lovely late afternoon and early evening in Florence, Italy!
ps: Roberta is the nice and really "bushy"-haired girl waiting tables, she's friendly, really kind and she likes singing along while working! The owner at the cash desk is really kind and helpful!
