Florence Craft Beer and Food Tour. This walking tour of Florence’s beer and brewery scene includes beer and food samplings. The Oltrarno district on the south side of the Arno River is a great place to sample four different types of Italian craft beer. Each one is accompanied by a bite-sized sample of food.

- 3-hour Florence walking tour with a local English-speaking guide
- Explore the ancient and medieval neighborhoods around the Oltrarno area
- Sample genuine Tuscan food
- Experience the real Italian lifestyle
- Learn about craft beer in Italy
- Italian wine or craft sodas also available at each stop
Join a small group tour to the other side of Florence, also called Oltrarno, where authentic Florentine life can still be found. During this tour, your guide will introduce you to local foods as well as Italian craft beers or local wine.
You will meet your guide in the heart of the city and then quietly walk out of the crowd to step into the real Florence! Before crossing the river and discovering the Oltrarno, we will make our first stop for a mouth-watering sample of cured meat and cheese.
The tour will continue across the bridge leading to the intimate atmosphere of Santo Spirito, for the first beer sample at one of the best Italian craft beer spots in town. Please do not worry if you are not a beer lover. Italian wine or craft sodas will be available at each stop.
For the second food tasting, we’ll visit the cutest local bakery for a sample of Cecina, a delicious savory chickpea flour pancake of the Tuscan culinary tradition.
After the tasting you will have the opportunity to taste a very peculiar type of pizza whose dough is prepared without yeast, using only sourdough carefully prepared by the master pizzaiolo. This wonderful preparation goes perfectly with another Belgian style, but purely Italian-made, beer sample.
Our next stop is a traditional Florentine Trattoria. This kind of restaurant is family-run and serves homemade food. Your guide will select the day’s special for you and tell you a bit about our Florentine food traditions and culture. Also, be ready to share the table with other clients as Italians do in trattorias.
This afternoon tour will finish with unique food and drink pairing: a chocolate cake paring with a stout-style beer. Don’t wrinkle your nose if it’s your first time trying this combination: you will be surprised by this amazing experience!
Be ready to immerse yourself in the Italian gourmet tradition!
