    Default Birthday cakes in Florence


    I am celebrating my birthday while in Florence for a week, and naturally I want to eat birthday cake! What are the spots in Florence to eat sweet pies?

    If you're up to trying local specialties, you can find delicious treats at all places called "pasticceria" - those are pastry shops.
    There are lots of cakes with cream and chocolate, you will be hard pressed to decide what to try. These are not traditional "cakes" in general, not like birthday cakes you find in the US, for example. They are not the type of cakes Italians eat for birthdays, they eat pastry type cakes which are the ones you'll see. You'll find pasticcerias everywhere, so not sure what to recommend, I wouldn't suggest one over the other unless you tell me which area in Florence you are staying in and something comes up to mind as being the area.
    In the beginning stages of planning to come to Tuscany? Make sure to read Where to Stay in Tuscany WITH a car and Where to Stay in Tuscany WITHOUT a car for ideas on where to stay in Tuscany. Also read When to Visit Tuscany to decide when is the best times for your visit.
