Fast Food in Florence

Florence is rich of typical Florence fast food restaurants where you can eat delicious Florence typical food like lampredotto & trippa panini (cow stomach sandwiches! – they’re good – trust us they are things to eat in Florence!) and even excellent ‘Pizza al taglio’ (pizza by the slice).

You can recognize the ‘trippai’ (cow stomach sandwich vendors) by the white/blue color of their small motortrucks parked in various parts of town where they cook typical food to eat in Florence.

Try the one in Piazza Sant’Ambrogio or on Via Sant’Antonino, and you’ll forget that McDonald’s exists in Florence.

The former sells from the typical ‘Ape Van’ of real Florence fast food tradition. Don’t be scared! Ask for: trippa or lampredotto typical food to eat in Florence!

But if you are a deeply addicted to American Fast food, don’t worry, we’ve even listed the addresses of all the places to eat in Florence of the city McDonald’s. But are you really sure you want to waste your precious Euros on American hamburgers when you’re in Italy???
