Restaurant Reservations required near Christmas?


New member
Hello, we plan to be in Florence Dec 23-27. We do plan to make reservations for Christmas lunch, but should we also make advance reservations for other dinners during our time there? We normally like to be a little spontaneous and get recommendations from locals when we are in a new place, but I want to make sure we are covered considering the timing of our visit!
No, I don't believe you need specific bookings for the other meals, you can leave some flexibility to your schedule.
The only time I would recommend (other than holidays) to make a booking is if you really, really want a specific restaurant and don't want to risk not finding space.
