Florence, Italy: My Favorite Restaurants, Gelato, Bars and Clubs

I recently just spent three weeks in Florence, Italy and it was one of the best experiences of my life. Because I was there for an extended amount of time, I REALLY got to experience Florence and all it had to offer. If you know anything about Italian culture, food is important. I ate my way through Florence and I have my favorite restaurants to prove it. Also in this post I will include the best spots for gelato along with my favorite bars and clubs.
