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.
We had a lovely time. Very informative. Learned a lot about the smaller shops and cafes in Florence. Our guide could't have been better - have unfortunately forgotten her name.
Wonder your. Highly recommended. The best of food, wine, olive oil and balsamic vinegars. Had a wonderful guide!
A great snapshot of coffee, truffles, dessert, wine, cheese, and The Central Market. You will definitely not go hungry! The tour is Very informative. Federica was simply awesome. She was very helpful and informative and has a great personality. Give this tour a try - you will not be sorry !
Fantastic tour. Feda is very enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide. Learnt a lot about the food and drinks we tasted. Would have been better to do it at the start of stay in Florence, due to the local knowledge gained from this tour. Would highly recommend.
Benedetta was a great guide. We had a jam packed tour of culinary delights mingled in with facts about life in Florence. We were so full by the end - having eaten and drunk at every stop - but we still managed the gelato! Great tour, great value for money and so glad we did it - even my reluctant husband...
Valentina was a brilliant guide, the tour was well thought out with a good balance of history, facts, food and fun!
Antonio, our guide, was fantastic. The tour was fascinating, even for a non coffee drinker at the first stop. Each stop host was enjoyable to listen to and did an excellent job communicating. Well worth the time and a great introduction to the city of Florence.
Most excellent. Bernadetti was great fun and full of information.
Just loved it. Feda was a fantastic tour guide. Everything was perfect. Could not have been improved in any way. 10 out of 10
Great introduction on first day of trip. We returned to market with confidence later.
Antonio , the guide, was fun and personable.
