Hi there
you can do so many things.
my suggestion is you contact Donatella at and tell her Francesca from Efffetti wedding in Tuscany suggested to contact her for an amazing wine or oil tour in the chianti area, and/or a cooking class if you like.
As per restaurants you can try the Frescobaldi in via dei magazzini (a corner of Piazza della Signoria) for very good wine and food. for a more typical but less touristic one go to the Trattoria Bordino right behind Ponte vecchio (in a quite hidden small street... amazing steak
Have fun

Hi

If you are looking for an alternative and very fun sightseeing, the best option is the Segway Tour of Florence

I also suggest you the following activities:
- Chocolate and Wine Tasting
- Wine and Cheese Tasting
- The Tour of the Secret Passages

Enjoy your stay in Florence and happy birthday!
