Get ready for the perfect introduction to Florence, especially if you love food!
Join a food-loving local guide to learn about local and regional cuisines while exploring the city's small alleyways. Walk through charming districts while strolling around the main squares and sites before arriving at a local bakery where you'll taste a few sweet delights.
You will also learn about our DOP breads and the use of ancient grains in traditional baking before tasting local bread with seasonal toppings like tomato and artichoke.
We will then take a stroll along the Via dei Tornabuoni to arrive at a farm-to-table delicatessen. Meet owner Alessandro who will welcome you to his store situated close to the Ponte Vecchio. Taste Tuscan prosciutto and other typical salumi, all of which come from the owner's free range organic farm. Savour Tuscan Extra Virgin Olive Oil on toasted bread with our local pecorino cheese, perfectly washed down with a glass of Chianti.
Then make a stop at the best gelateria in town. Owner Ciro and his family make these perfect flavours fresh every day like true artisans. Continue to a chocolate store on the main high street just by the Duomo Complex to taste the delicious chocolates, including blood red Sicilian orange rind dipped in dark chocolate.
We will bid farewell with a glass of prosecco and truffle panino at a historical wine bar. Before you go, make sure to ask your local guide where else to dine and drink in the city.
