Day 13 & 14 — Palazzo Strozzi to Sant'Ambrogio

Best tripe (trippa) and cow's stomach (lampredotto) food cart - Lampredotto is synonymous with street food. It's definitely comfort food material. The cook takes a roll slices it in halves. With a two-prong fork, he takes out a stewed cow's stomach out of its broth. Lays it out on a chopping board and hacks away. He ladles in a heaping tablespoon of salsa verde, a green herb sauce. 

Chiesa di Sant'Ambrogio

Tempio Maggiore Israelitico - a spectacular copper domed temple that survived the Nazi attacks. Located in Eastern Florence, it stands out in Sant'ambrogio because it dwarfs the residential buildings in its vicinity.

Piazza di San Pier Maggiore - A quaint little square with a couple fresh vegetable markets and small shops selling cold cuts—salami, bresaola, mortadella, prosciutto, speck, and cheese—pecorino romano, fontina, mozzarella, parmesan reggiano, ricotta, etc. 

Corso - the main street filled with various palaces from old Florentine families. 

Palazzo Strozzi - Once a castle built in the same style as Palazzo Medici-Riccardi, it now houses art galleries, and art shows from artists around the world.
