What You Can Expect
Your first stop is at a delicatessen that specializes in truffles, a particularly sought-after commodity in Tuscany, and learn how locals forage for the valuable fungus. Here, you'll sample a panino tartufato, a pâté sandwich topped with shavings of those prized truffles, accompanied by a glass of sparkling prosecco.
The next stop at an artisan chocolatier allows you to treat your sweet tooth. You'll taste different chocolates in a guided tasting session, learning what sets handmade chocolates apart, before heading to a very popular shop selling Tuscan olive oils and balsamic vinegars. Here, you'll have another guided tasting, learning about the variation olive oils can have from fruity to peppery.
Wandering further from the olive oil shop, you'll indulge in a gelato treat from a beloved local gelateria and finally end your tour at a wine bar. Enjoy some warm-from-the-oven focaccia bread and a glass of one of Tuscany's most famous wines – Chianti – while you review what you've tasted and plot your next meal.
Tour guide was excellent, she presented us with many historical interested facts about food and wine in Florence and the important families who shaped Florence's history.
Best tour I did in Italy, Linda was a fantastic tour guide, lots of history, information and tips!!all the places were amazing - and yummy - places that as a tourist you would never find. After this tour I booked two more tours with Urban Adventures. The best way to discover the 'real' Florence. Thanks Linda and your crew!!
This is a really great tour. Gemma was waiting for us when we arrived at the meeting point and she was friendly and informative throughout the tour. Just four of us which made for a really personal experience. Visited places we may never have found and tasted wonderful food and wine.

AMAZING TOUR!! Linda, our guide, was phenomenal! She brought us to little restaurants and shops we never would have experienced on our own. We tasted amazing food, wine, etc., etc., etc!! The gelato at the end was the best anywhere in Florence and turned out to be righ behind our hotel!!!
Linda was wonderful with lots of knowledge on food and wine. My only concern was we found it hard to find her and could have missed the tour. There was nothing showing she was from Viator instead she was holding another sign which was a little confusing, luckily we asked at she was our guide.
Amazing!!!!! Loved this tour. Very informative and extremely enjoyable.Lynda was amazing!
I believe any city tour should start with a walking food tour. Our guide was wonderful - extremely knowledgeable - fun - and personable. I feel like I know Florence now and would love to visit our guide and the city again.
