P.S. Below you'll find 3 crowd-free trattorias in Tuscany that your travelers will love


Florence trattoria

Tucked on a side street in Florence, Gilda Bistrot is a haven from the crowds. Gilda, the owner, will welcome you with a kiss on each cheek — serving up rustic and yet refined classics.


Venice restaurant

Siena's side streets are home to the city's tastiest eateries. La Chiacchiera is your textbook Tuscan trattoria — boasting hand-written menus, liters of local wine, and fresh pasta.


Fuori Porta Florence

Located in Florence's quieter Oltrarno district, Fuori Porta is a favorite happy-hour haunt of locals. From the terrace, you can glimpse the vine-dotted hills of Chianti.
