What You Can Expect
Continue to an old delicatessen founded in 1885, where you’ll enjoy a panino tartufato, a delicate, truffle pâté sandwich made with the truffles for which the deli is famous. As you continue to your next food stop, listen as your guide illustrates the history of Florence’s most important squares where Florentines used to buy their food. Learn about typical local dishes and ingredients, but don’t expect detailed how to’s – Italians would never give away their secret family recipes!
To understand how Italians prepare their delicious plates, take a trip to the San Lorenzo Central Market, one of the main shopping centers in Florence known for fresh, locally grown ingredients. Taste some of the region’s best balsamic vinegars and extra virgin olive oils with crostini, traditional toasted Italian bread.
Your tour continues to a local wine shop, known as an enoteca, where you'll savor two Tuscan wines, accompanied by delicious regional cheeses and local meats. While you enjoy your tasting, learn about the origins of the food and wine from your guide. Top it off with something sweet at the final stop of your tour, one of Florence's best gelato shops where you’ll indulge in freshly made gelato!
At the end of your Florence food walking tour, you’ll leave feeling like a local.
The Florence Food Tour was absolutely wonderful. Our guide was so nice and personable. We tried Espresso, pastries/sweets, olive oil, cheese, wine, prosciutto etc. and the lady at the market stall that managed that part of the food tasting was so nice and knowledgeable, we then went on to have so many more yummy food treats. It was an absolutely wonderful time and I would high recommend this tour to anyone visiting Florence!!
This is a very enjoyable tour. The organization was excellent, the guide Federika did a great job and the experts who told us about the different food items really knew their stuff! The variety of foods was very good, from gelato to coffee, oils and vinegars, pastries, cheeses and even truffles. It was a real pleasure to explore this side of Florence with people from other parts of the world who are interested in food. Highly recommended. Thank you.
