From mouthwatering truffle sandwiches to artisan breads, cheeses, salami, wine, and a variety of seasonal specialties, our Florence food tours are designed to dazzle the senses and introduce non-residents to the cities unique flavors and aromas.
Stopping to sample the San Lorenzo Market, Florence’s oldest, our guides help you select and taste as wide as possible a variety of local dishes including local Tuscan savory masterpieces.
Visiting authentic wine shops, local sommeliers will explain the secret behind local wine colors, perfumes and the local art of basic viticulture and wine making itself.
As part of our Florence food walking tour grand finale, we will later finish with a desert of authentic Florentine gelato. A sweet sensation dating back to Roman times when snow would be brought down from local mountains, local legend has it that Florence itself first gave rise to modern ice cream.
