What You Can Expect
Start with a visit to a delicatessen that specializes in foraging and selling truffles, one of the region’s highly prized natural ingredients. Sip on a glass of zesty crisp prosecco (the Italian’s answer to Champagne) and soak up the bubbles with a panino tartufato – a delicate pâté sandwich seasoned to perfection with slivers of the gourmet fungi.
Stroll to an artisan chocolate shop nearby and treat your sweet tooth to a chocolate-tasting session. Savor silky-soft nuggets of the sweet treat, noting the rich flavors present in high-quality chocolate, and then head out of the shop to visit an olive oil boutique.
Popular with locals and visitors alike, the high-end shop specializes in the sale of quality Tuscan olive oils and balsamic vinegars. Sit down for a tasting with the shop's charming owner and learn about the different varieties of fruity and piquant oils on offer.
Take a wander along the pretty cobblestone alleyways that make up the backstreets of the city, and stop for a gelato from a locally loved gelateria before winding up inside a wine bar. Sip on a glass of Chianti – one of Tuscany’s typically robust and tannic reds – and nibble on chunks of warm focaccia bread to finish your foodie adventure.
Definately recommended!!!! Our 4year old daughter enjoyed it, mostly the ice cream part! Our guide Natale was just perfect
I have not stopped raving about the Florence Gourmet Food Tour! We had a very small group which allowed for personal interaction with our phenomenal guide. The tour was a wonderful blend of historical tidbits and delicious gourmet bites from local artisan shops; places we would not have discovered on our own. I enjoyed learning about truffles, olive oil, and Florence's ancient wine "drive through system". It was a brilliantly conceived tour!
