The Florence Issue is the travel companion to the birthplace of the Renaissance, the City of Lilies, and home to the Negroni. From what to expect when you land to over 25 restaurants, bars, cafes, and museums to visit, our latest issue of Life & Thyme Post is a practical guide to exploring Firenze through the people that have called Florence home. 

Discover culinary staples, like lampredotto and schiacciata, while exploring a new generation of pioneers reinventing Tuscan cuisine like Matilde Pettini of Dalla Lola. Dive into the mind of Lead Designer Stefano Della Pietra of La Marzocco, the company that transformed coffee culture around the world. Book author and Emmy-winning producer Stef Ferrari recounts her time living in Florence as an expat and writer. Chef Gaetano Arnone explores the connection between the Baroque era of Italian art to today’s culinary arts. Take a day trip to Villa Le Corti, the historical estate and vineyard helmed by the noble Corsini family since the 1300s in the heart of Chianti. And a few Florentine-inspired recipes along the way to try at home.
