Quick tips to survive Valentine’s Day in Florence

bookmark
Mon 05 Feb 2018 9:45 AM

Love is beautiful, but sometimes it ends up not happening. Luckily, there are a lot of things to do in Florence to heal yourself and survive the worst day of the year for every broken heart.

 

 

 

 

1. If you find yourself at a table for two, eat for two. Nobody will ever know that you ate a double cheese pizza—even your metabolism will understand.

2. Binge-watch the first season of Medici: Masters of Florence. You’ll spend the whole night rooting for Contessina de’ Bardi (what a fierce queen!) until you fall asleep.

3. Have a long relaxing walk beside the Arno while listening to good music and watching the sunset over the Ponte Vecchio (but do not listen to Adele’s Someone Like You, for your own sake).

4. Do something fun. Go visit a museum, have a nice dinner with friends, buy souvenirs for your relatives abroad, treat yourself to some new clothes.

5. Embrace the “I Am Single” moment. Eventually, one day, someone will show up at your front door with cue cards, just like in Love Actually.
