What You Can Expect

Florence Gourmet Food Tour: Truffles, Chocolate, Gelato, Olive Oil and Wine

The best local food stores

After meeting your guide in the historic city center, you'll begin your gourmet food tour of Florence by learning about how Tuscany's culinary history and respect for quality produce carries into how Tuscans continue to make food to this day.

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.

I got really lucky depending on your viewpoint on this tour. I was traveling solo and the other couple scheduled for the tour did not show up so I got a private tour! My guide was a doll and we had a great time - since I was by myself we had extra time to take a few little detours to some extra historical spots as we moved from one food venue to the next. Highly recommend!

I was the only person who had signed up for this tour, so the tour company contacted me and asked if I wanted to move to a wine tasting tour later that same day. I said that was no problem. And, I'm glad I did!

Linda, from the tour company Urban Adventures was so warm and wonderful! Made everyone feel at home as we walked the streets of Florence tasting food and wine.

Would definitely recommend this tour!

Great tour. We were shown good places, saw a bit of the city we'd likely not see and met great people while enjoying the food and wine!
