Here we take a look at 3 of the top Michelin Star restaurants in Florence - featuring Santa Elisabetta, Gucci Osteria da Massimo Bottura and Enoteca Pinchiorri.

As with anywhere in Italy, food and wine are at the very heart of Tuscany's existence. However, there's also much more to the regional capital than just fine-dining restaurants. In 1982, UNESCO recognized the historic centre as a world heritage site, owing to its rich artistic and architectural heritage.

Tuscany's capital is an open-air art museum, renowned for nurturing the talents of legendary artists like Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Botticelli, Donatello, and Brunelleschi. Every corner reveals a new sculpture or captivating mural, as well as a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture. Yet, among all this, the culinary scene in Florence is also truly exceptional and rivals that of any other Italian city.
