‘Free food?’ Queried the lone Antiopodean of no-one in particular, ‘You serious, free food?’ Queuing in my orderly British fashion waiting my turn to take my pick from this bountiful Italian spread, I was more than amused by this travellers exclamations – first time in Italy & obviously on a budget. What a great time of day to arrive in Florence. Ciao aperitivo! With one of the many clocks about to strike 6, it’s the perfect time to stop the sightseeing and head to a bar busily preparing to take tourists & locals alike from late afternoon to early evening. Swop your cappuccino for the fabulously coloured & perfectly refreshing Aperol Spritz, take your seat overlooking the bustling piazza and enjoy the snacks on offer brought for you to enjoy with your drink.
