To obtain authentic information about a destination, it is often helpful to follow local bloggers. When it comes to Florence, you should follow Georgette Jupe Pradier, the “Girl in Florence”. Her blog of the same name has existed since 2012, after which she has shared monthly tips on events in Florence and the surrounding area, as well as recommendations for the local gastronomy scene as well as shopping tips. And also something personal, as well as other travel tips and recommendations. Georgette, a US citizen, moved to Florence a few years ago after calling Los Angeles her adoptive home.
I particularly like their monthly overviews of events around and in Florence. At the beginning of every month, she publishes an overview of activities for the month, the “WHAT TO DO IN FLORENCE: PERSONAL SUGGESTIONS”. Recommended for tourists to plan the days on the spot. The first day in the city is still a truffle market, then you move the planned visit to the Uffizi but rather to experience the culinary feast! Here are some tips for the current month of October.
