Nardia Plumridge, the Australian travel journalist behind the popular website Lost in Florence, promises to help intrepid travelers do just that with her new guidebook of the same name. Plumridge’s love affair with Florence began when she was just 15 and lured her back in 2012 when she set off to discover the most unique places in the Renaissance city.
“Often, the best travel experiences we have are when we take that unexpected turn and get lost… in the most adventurous sense, ” she says. Her guidebook, Lost in Florence (Hardie Grant, 2019), shines a light on boutique shops, young artisans and hole-in-the-wall eateries that can only be found away from the crowds.
Here, she shares her insights on the best places to explore in Florence.
