Taste Florence:: Gourmet food tour

Are you sick of museums or are you a curious traveler?
Walk with a local to typical markets and groceries shops. In Florence going for food means stopping for an espresso or a cappuccino in a local bar, seeking out the best extra virgin olive oil or balsamic vinegar, having a panino with a friend or moving on to an enoteca for starters and good Chianti wine, then choose the best gelato or a chocolate treat for dinner!

>Florentines are notoriously picky eaters so they insist on the best of everything.

That’s exactly what you’ll get on our local Florence food tour and your gastronomic adventure will take place in the city’s quieter, local area where your experience will be extra authentic.

Morning food tour

Your private gastronomic guided tour will take you from place to place and will start with a visit of the most typical market (Sant'Ambrogio) to learn about local bread varieties, focaccia, cold cuts, extra virgin cold pressed olive oil, produces and un-usual local street food.

You’ll taste different cheeses, cold cuts – Tuscan salami and ham, such as finocchiona and soprassata – olives and spread. The experience will include espresso or cappucino and a stop for a selected gelato and reconize a genuine gelateria: by the way, did you know that icecream was invented in Florence?.

Please....come hungry!

Late afternoon food tour

We will make our way towards the river Arno and cross the famous Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge) to the quiet neighborhood of Oltrarno. You will see the facade of Pitti Palace and going from place to place you will pamper your senses. We will visit groceries, bakeries and a local wine bar for a tasting experience, including one of the best Super Tuscan wines, and three types of local crostini (bruschetta) and then observing local artsians' shops we will reach Piazza Santo Spirito, that means a great area for eating! so this is where your private guide will leave you at around 7.30 pm. That’s dinner time in Florence, so what better time to test out our recommendations?

Finish your day in a delicious way!
